Twitter has relaunched its app for Mac OS, which brings the same features and design of the iPhone app to Apple’s desktop computers.
The old Mac app was discontinued back in February 2018. Unlike the previous iteration of Twitter for Mac, which was notorious for rarely being updated, the company promises that its new app will get new features just as quickly as the mobile app.
Twitter for Mac is available to use now on Mac OS 10.15 Catalina. For the most part, it’s the same Twitter experience you’re used to, although the Mac app does come with some exclusive features such as:
- Multi-Task with Multiple Windows: Browse and Tweet in as many windows as you need. Even compose multiple tweets at the same time in different windows.
- Drag and Drop It: Want to quickly include a funny photo or a link to a story you can’t stop reading in your Tweet? Now, you can drag and drop 4k images (JPEG, PNG, TIFF, HEIC and WebP), text and links directly into your Tweet composer.
In addition, the Mac app has all of the most popular iOS features such as dark mode and multi-account switching.
“Twitter should always be consistent and connect you to the conversations and interests you care about most across all the ways you use it. The new Twitter for Mac is the latest example of our commitment to this goal, and we’ll continue to build off of this work as we bring new Twitter features and improvements to you.”
The new Twitter for Mac is available now from the Mac App Store.
