Thanks for the fast window fix - Its look pretty neat
Worst client I’ve ever used, for ANYTHING - And I’ve used a lot over the years. Just for a start, Twitter went to 280 characters a month ago—but this app hasn’t been updated since MAY. The IOS apps were updated immediately. Tweetbot was updated immediately. But this piece of garbage just hangs here like a gym sock on a shower rod. It doesn’t deserve the one star I’m forced to give it. The Mac client seems to be the bastard child of Twitter development. It’s amazingly buggy, so when each new release (whenever they get around to them) says it contains bug fixes, have a good laugh and don’t get your hopes up, because even if they’ve fixed some, I guarantee they’ve added exciting *new ones*. It’s also an unbelievable memory hog. I don’t know who works on this app, but I picture either a team of monkeys with keyboards hoping to produce Hamlet, or one lone developer who’s given five minutes every week to work on this app—if that. It’s almost as if they want you to buy someone else’s client, because they certainly can’t expect you to use this one.

No nearly the same functions as ios. Do these developers not use this app? - Can’t DM tweets natively. Can’t tweet media without downloading the file. Videos sometimes cannot play. Which will be nice, since videos in the ios version prevent you from keep scrolling the app. But here i could just keep both screens at the same time. There’s no handoff support, which would be awesome if it would remember my place in the timeline. Also you got so much space in the side bar, maybe you can allow people to put there accounts or conversations or hashtags people would like to keep their eyes on. No proper full screen window, which for such a large company and for 2016 is shameful. You guys own tweetdeck, you know how to make a full screen-pro user ui.
A total mess - The macOS version of the Twitter app is an utter disaster. Since switching to it (primarily for the ability to sync with my phone, and because Tweetbot doesn’t allow you to send gifs in DMs), I’ve had the following issues: -Memory issues: As I use the app over a day or so, it will slowly take up over a GB of memory, sapping my system’s resources. Mind you, I have no powerhouse, but this gets annoying. -Slowdown: Especially when I’m DMing a friend (we have a rather huge DM history), the app will slowdown, going into full beach ball mode for a minute before my message shows at sent on my computer (long after it shows as sent on my phone). -Notifications not showing up: Notifications regularly show up well after they do on my phone. -New tweets/notifications delayed: Related to the above, it’ll take ages for new Tweets, DMs, and Notifications to show up well after they do on my phone. -Dock/app icon issues: The Dock and in-app new Tweet notifications do not go away as they should. So, all in all, AVOID until Twitter fixes this mess. If they ever do.
"Live Stream is Off" - The app constantly gives me messages that "Live Stream is Off" and offers to "Continue with Delay" or "Reconnect". It says that there are too many copies of Twitter for Mac logged in as my account. The only thing I can think of is that since my computer is connected via both Ethernet and Wifi that it is making 2 connections. But this is the only app that seems to complain about it. Since I have 6 Twitter accounts, I have to either force kill the app, or click through the message 6 times.
Significant regression in scrolling/marking tweets as read - In my opinion, the inability to mark all tweets as read by scrolling to the top is a significant regression for this release. The updated behavior in version 4.3.2 simply does not work. Consequently, I stopped using this app and have gone to using a tab in Safari. Please bring back the old scrolling behavior that (1) marked all tweets as read and (2) cleared the highlighted icons that indicated unread tweets.
New tweet notification does not go away - Since the latest update the notification circle next to the home icon does not go away when you reach the top of your feed, rendering it pretty useless. Also the ability to swipe a photo or video window closed is no longer here.
