Legacy version, please upgrade to Tweetbot 3 for Mac instead.


Tweetbot is a full-featured OS X Twitter client with a lot of personality. Whether it’s the meticulously-crafted interface, sounds and animation, or features like multiple timelines and column views, there’s a lot to love about Tweetbot.


Multiple Timelines. Quickly switch between your lists as your main timeline.
Multiple Windows and Columns. Display timelines from different accounts side by side.
Notification Center support.
Beautiful Retina graphics.
Mute filters lets you block messages from users without unfollowing them. You can also mute hashtags and specific keywords.


Legacy version, please upgrade to Tweetbot 3 for Mac instead.

What’s New

Version 2.5.8

On August 16th Twitter will disable parts of their public interface that we use in Tweetbot. Because Twitter has chosen not to provide alternatives to these interfaces we have been forced to disable or degrade certain features. We're sorry about this, but unfortunately this is totally out of our control.

- Timeline streaming is now disabled. Your timelines will now refresh automatically every 1-2 minutes instead.
- Notifications for Mentions, Direct Messages, Follows and Follower's Tweets will now be delayed by a few minutes.
- Notifications for Likes and Retweets have been disabled.
- Activity tab has been removed.

No polls, no group DMs :(

The main reason I keep going back to Twitter for Mac (despite it being buggy as heck and getting buggier) is because it shows polls! I know this is probably not your fault, Tweetbot devs, but I had to install the app to find out that it lacked the feature I wanted and that kinda sucked since the app is not super cheap.

AVOID! Fundamentally broken and no support from Tapbots

Just had a very frustrating twitter (ironic, eh!) convo with Tapbots CS. Who simply chose to blame twitter API (see notes on v.2.5.8) for the raft of missing functionality on this app. Admittedly it did work fairly well when I bought it (March 2018) — now it barely does anything that anyone using a twitter client would want. Mentions, RTs, likes — you can pretty much forget about seeing those on Tweetbot 2. Even following the entire thread of a conversation you’re having is largely impossible. It’s unusable, basically — it should not be on sale here and it most certainly SHOULD NOT be listed as an Editor’s Choice!

So, what are Tapbots doing about this? Well, mostly blaming twitter… And not offering any kind of make-good or discount to customers lumbered with one of the most expensive (and useless) twitter clients around. Absolutely shameful practice by a company I’ve bought several apps from down the years (going back to the iPhone 4). Never again.

The best twitter app by far!

I’ve used Tweetbot for iOS for a number of years now and found it to be the best app for accessing Twitter on iOS so I thought that I would give the Mac app version ago. Within a few minutes of using it it has again outdone the original Twitter app by miles. The UI and features on the Mac app copy that of the iOS app and everything just works brilliantly. It’s sad that a 3rd party app does a better job for Twitter users than Twitter themselves.

Well done Tweetbot 👍🏻
