Twitter Announces App For Mac

Posted Jan 6, 2011

Twitter has announced a new application for the Apple Mac App Store. Tweets appear in real-time (through the streaming API). The Twitter Mac App Store app automatically shortens URLs and there are a lot of keyboard shortcuts. The Twitter Mac application is three times faster than the app used to be known as Tweetie For Mac. Twetie for Mac was a desktop application created by atebits developer Loren Brichter. Loren put together the new Mac app during the first Hack Week that the company had this past October. [Twitter Blog]
