Great so far! Could be excellent.

Awesome interface! It's new but shows promise. Smooth flow and sleek interface. Atttention on:

1. Text size does not match with left tab.
2. We should be able to click anywhere on a video timeline and the round curser follow with out actually have to chase the round curser to where we want to forward the video.
3 The tweet button should be featured somewhere on the center of the screen or even by the left tab. Instead its found akwardly at a distance right corner of the screen app.
4. Missing live videos/periscopes at the top of the screen like in the iPhone app. Otherwise we have to search for the tweet with live streaming on profiles.
5. The closing, minimizing, and full screen options along with the tweet option at the top of the screen window should be redesigned to be integrated within the app.

Overall great app! Thank you Twitter for coming back to Mac Catalina strong!

Feels like a website...

This standalone app just feels like the website version of Twitter, but with more bugs. The only new feature I've seen is the system integrated dark mode support, but this could even be added to the website if they cared enough. I would've expected more features like Touch Bar support - that would be awesome! Also, there are many bugs with this first release. For example, you can't resize the text without using a workaround. The feature is there, within a UI, but when you drag the slider it moves the window around. Finally, the app is incredibly inconsistant. It doesn't follow any of Apple's MacOS human design guidelines, and menu bars, buttons, etc are all different depending in what menu you are in. Overall, the app is very unpolished; I would reccommend using an app like TweetBot instead.

Not even close to the old official app

This isn't an app made for macOS. It's essentially the iOS version, with a couple of settings pages oddly mapped to their own windows.

The timeline does not stay pinned to the top. You cannot see multiple accounts at once, not even notification dots specific to each account. Window management is awful if not non-existant, and trackpad gestures aren't present either. The dark theme offers two color choices – neither of which match the system.

I loved the old official Twitter app that was discontinued years ago. This is not a revival of it, and it feels like they didn't put any effort in to it at all. I will keep using a 3rd-party paid app instead of this official one, despite the fact that Twitter disabled several API features for 3rd-party apps.
