Twitter is murdering the Twitter for Mac desktop client


On Friday, Twitter announced that it would desert a lesser-loved Mac app, directing users to Twitter.com instead. The association announced that it will refocus a efforts on “a good Twitter knowledge that’s unchanging opposite platforms” rather than stability growth for Twitter for Mac, a summary that doesn’t sound good for TweetDeck lovers. The Twitter for Mac app no longer lives in a Mac App Store, yet a one and a half star rating lives on in a hearts and minds of a few devoted users, maybe.

Over a years, Twitter has mostly seen a possess central app eclipsed by slicker, some-more feature-rich third-party clients, that it infrequently buys up. Twitter bought a program that developed into Twitter for Mac (formerly famous as Tweetie for Mac) behind in 2010, yet it’s mostly believed to have languished following a acquisition.

Many Twitter users are expressing their concerns that a association could likewise nightfall TweetDeck, a well-loved customer with multi-column organization, list-making collection and strong notifications that a association acquired for $40 million behind in 2011. For a normal company, finale a product that everybody feels flattering good about wouldn’t be a expected intensity outcome, though Twitter isn’t accurately famous for creation choices in lockstep with a desires of a dogmatic user base.

While many people aren’t expected to weep a flitting of Twitter for Mac, a choice does prominence a gaping hole where a plain multi-platform customer should go. Considering a resources and a lessons a association should have schooled from nonessential contention with a growth village over a years, it doesn’t seem like a large ask.
