Replaced Tweetbot with this

For as long as I can remember, I've been a user of the various versions of Tweetbot. Upon recently upgrading my MBP I encountered numerous UI issues with Tweetbot. So, I did some checking around and saw that Twitter had an app out (I thought they killed it) for Mac. I've been using it, and enjoying that usage, ever since. I haven't even logged back in to Tweetbot since that day, and will likely delete it after writing this review. I typically find that I do not enjoy apps created by the service, but Twitter has left me pleasantly suprised. My one complaint is that the app routinely encounters an error and shuts itself down at least twice a day. Other than that, the design is wonderful and friendly to use. I can rotate between various accounts. Composing longer tweets is a simple click. Dark mode is pleasing and useful instead of gimicky. The ability to customize the app and settings is user friendly. Well done!

What a comeback!

Twitter forced me to switch to another app (Tweetbot) on the desktop, after they abandoned their old client app years ago. What a pleasure it is to come back to this new app. It's faster in every way, and of course, supports all official Twitter functions. Why only 4 stars? I have run into the bug mentioned in other reviews: Randomly on launch, maybe 1 out of 10 times, my window size and position has reset to default. Also, we need more keyboard shortcuts to get around in the app. I'd like to be able to hit Escape to close a media window, and bind that to a mouse button. Needing to use Command-W to put away an image makes it more likely to accidentally close the main window if it has focus, and then you've quit the app when you didn't want to. Still, highly recommended. This is the Twitter app you should be using, with one or ten accounts. Welcome back. UPDATE: Since version 8.6 or so, the chance for window size and position to reset to default has greatly increased. It has become extremely annoying now, and nothing else has improved. So I'm removing one star until someone at Twitter actually listens to user feedback.

Promising but lacks features / too many bugs

After years of neglect, it's truly a relevation to have Twitter's first-party client back for macOS. Unfortunately this shininess doesn't come without some significant drawbacks. It's unclear if the issues are with Apple or with Twitter but anoying bugs and lack of polish persist. For example, every time I connect or disconnect my AirPorts, it crashes. There is also no easy keyboard shortcut to dismiss the media player like there is in other clients. When composing a Tweet, if you paste in a URL, it displays the preview underneath but you can no longer scroll up to see the Tweet you are responding to. None of these issues are show-stoppers but together they add up to an overall buggy and unpolished experience.
