Twitter for Mac Finally Gets Overhauled with ‘New’ features

January 5, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Such has been the update weight age of Twitter for Mac devices that it felt like the social media platform was nearly forgotten that they existed in Mac.

But no, that’s not the case. After two years of inert period, Twitter for Mac is getting some major updates.

The refinements arrive with the latest version, Twitter for Mac 4.0, which adds various new features like in-line video and GIF support, tweet quoting, and more.


Users in Mac can also now play with the already-existing features like Group Direct Messages and mute feature.

Much of these features won’t appear new for Twitter users on other platforms. But that explains the relevance of this new update, as the Mac version barely got any big update since 2013, after getting itself launched in 2011.

Twitter for Mac also now gets a visual overhaul with the new design inclusions like icons and buttons. It also sticks more close to the design ecosystem provided by Mac OS X Yosemite and El Capitan.

Apart from the normal Twitter theme, users can also try out the new black colored mode, which appears to have its inspiration rooted from the previous dark them introduced for Yosemite.

And finally, users will also have the access to put their notifications right on Today Center Widget to get them displayed on their desktop.

Although with the upgrades charging in, some of the users have also pointed out some flaws in the update that has led to issues with log in, scrolling, and notifications. We hope Twitter doesn’t take much time like before to address these issues.
