After three years of waiting, Twitter has finally updated TweetDeck for the Mac. Note that this is currently Twitter’s only app available on the Mac, as their Twitter for Mac app was scrapped from the Mac App Store in early 2018.
The version of the app that was released is version 3.10, which includes the ability to use macOS Mojave’s Dark Mode, as well as other new features too.
The official update list for this app is the following:
– Updated to support macOS Mojave, including Dark Mode. You can also set a custom theme that doesn’t match the system settings.
– Rebuilt TweetDeck for Mac to fix many crashes and to include better crash reporting, so we can fix bugs faster in the future.
– Updated Help page to point to correct version
– Many other internal improvements
The app additionally received a new app icon, which now has a different shade of blue on the outside and a white Twitter bird icon. It looks a lot like the old Twitter for Mac icon but just in a square icon, whereas the old Twitter for Mac app had a circular app icon.
TweetDeck for Mac is a free Twitter app in the Mac App Store. It should also be said that TweetDeck for Mac is currently the only Mac Twitter app on the market right now and is also the only one that has the streaming feature to it.
There are a couple third-party Twitter apps in the Mac App Store that have a different design. Those apps are Tweetbot and Twitterrific for the Mac and also have iPhone and iPad versions too. However, neither of these apps will have streaming capabilities due to the Twitter API changes that were made in 2018.
