Thanks for the fast window fix - Its look pretty neat
what were they thinking? - The website is really nice. You can save links to Pocket directly from tweets without ever having to leave where you are. The app doesn’t support that feature, which is disappointing. And for some reason they thought it would be a good idea to also block copying and pasting links. Why would you do something like that? It isn’t a full screen app, so obviously you immediately think this is meant to be dropped into a “desktop" with another app, to take advantage of OS’s new split screen manaagment features, but also for some ridiculous reason, they thought it would be a good idea to block this as well, so that you get to have a big empty desktop with this little column in the corner for twitter. Why would you do that? Maybe a feature for the next update could be showing people’s usernames and that they tweeted something, but never loading the actual tweet, so that you get to not be able to see tweets. Or maybe the other way around and just show the tweets, so that you get to not know who said it.

Version 4.3 is not a good update... - This latest version has a lot of regressions from the previous version. First of all, you can no longer refresh your feed (it’s grayed out in the file menu). You can no longer access the link to a tweet with keyboard commands unless you’re IN the tweet. No one uses their mouse with this app, keyboard commands are a must! Moving up and down in your feed is very disconnected, when you go down, it’s a smooth scroll, but going up in your feed has no scrolling at all, it just jumps you to the next tweet. This again, doesn’t make sense, why a regression from the previous version? Lastly, the notification on the dock doesn’t go away when you reach the top of your feed. Utterly mind boggling how something that simple got missed. Please release an update to this version! The previous one worked just fine.
50/50 - DM performance seems to be better now, although I admittedly don't use this app as much because Twitter has done such a terrible job in the past at fixing all the problems they've introduced to it. The main problems with this version are: A. The menu bar icon no longer highlights at all, even though its enabled in the settings. B. All mentioned usernames are no longer displayed in the tweets in the Timeline, nor when replying. Instead they are relegated to "@someone and x others", making it a hassle and waste of time having to click through a reply chain just to find out who all the people in the message are.
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.
"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.
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.
