Let’s rate the app itself - The app is honestly a 5 star app on it’s own merits. However you feel about the developers and their lack of progress on anything but the iPhone version, the sillyness of diverting attention from the iPad and Mac for a calculator app - This app is deserving of 5 stars on it’s own. There isn’t a better Twitter client. The app makes Twitter honestly feel more fun. It’s easier to keep up with stuff, you get better information and better tools than on the site, it even offered many things before the site did itself (Muting for example). It’s a game changer as far as Twitter goes, and it’s worth what it costs. The $19.99 (or whatever it is now, that’s what I paid when it launched) is well worth the cost. It’s steep for an app, but once you use it you’ll really forget that it cost that much because even as outdated as it is now, it still feels like a steal for that amount and it’s again, far superior to any other method of using Twitter. There’s literally nothing else that can be compared to it. That, and they also get limited tokens so the price really is justified. While the app desperately needs an major update like, yesterday (I’m with you guys) and the iPad version feels long forgotten for well over a year, it seems they’re finally opening up to the public and demonstrating that they are working on the Mac version anyway. I honestly don’t believe the iPad version will ever come, but it looks like the Mac version might get here someday. I know it says soon here, and the iPad said soon almost a year and a half ago, but it looks like the Mac version really might be the real-world definition of soon. Honestly very unhappy with the devs and their lack of outreach/updating their customers regularly like every other dev (honestly how hard is a blog post from time to time) but we’re not rating the developer here.

Crashes more than it works - I used to really love Tweetbot; bought it for all of my devices, etc. But long ago, it stopped syncing between them properly. Months ago, the mac version started crashing every single time I mute any keyword or user or change any setting, which is the main selling point for this app in the first place. I have updated it and everything else (OS, etc.) multiple times, but same problems persist with no communication or awareness by the company. Especially now that others offer the same features—incl basic Twitter itself—it’s hard to find a reason to stick with Tweetbot.

Version 2.5.1
Review by Brad Oliver

Used to love it, now - not so much. - Tweetbot is - or at least was - a very bright spot among Twitter clients. However, some time around May, it stopped showing me new DMs. In fact, until today I was completely obvlivious that I was missing any. Sure enough: checking on shows a whole stack of DMs waiting for me. Refreshing and refreshing in Tweetbot - they never load. It's as if they didn't exist. Most of my Twitter usage is one-way consumption. That seems to work fine. What is more concerning is that Tweetbot is entirely failing to show me messages sent directly to me, and there's obviously no indication that anything is wrong. I'm hoping they'll sort this out soon, but if I'm being honest, I'm actively searching for a new macOS Twitter client.

Can’t Live Without It - Tweetbot has always, hands down, been my favorite Twitter client. Gets better and better with every update, and I love the little options it provides like the ability to do a classic, old-style reply when I need to. Not even Twitter’s official client comes anywhere near this client. And for the people who complain about missing features such as polls and group DMs, TWITTER DOES NOT CURRENTLY ALLOW THESE THINGS IN 3RD PARTY APPS! Don’t blame the devs!

Version 2.5.1
Review by synthetic67

What Happened? - I used to love TweetBot. I would recommend it to everybody. It allowed me to effortlessly switch between accounts, and monitor activity. Plus it notified me when different accounts had mentions or Das, and everything was easy. Now? I’m getting frustrated. For one thing, it takes way too long to load on a newer iMac. It fails to update notifications and Das with responses or whole conversations altogether. I feel like it drastically needs a refresh button. Lately this has been getting so bad that I find myself being forced more and more back to the Twitter web app, which doesn’t suit my needs. And now I’m starting to look elsewhere for a replacement. This is not good. I love TweetBot, but these issues need to be fixed before you start to lose the widespread love that you’ve gained.

Twitter cannot authenticate app - “Sorry, please try again later. This application cannot authenticate more users at this time.” C’mon, Tweetbot. Wassup with that?
