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.

Great app…please bring back old notification features! - I love this app, but for some reason the latest update removed one of the best features…when the little menu bar Twitter bird logo lights up when I get a notificaiton, it no longer tells me when I click it what the notification is for. It used to highlight whether it was a mention or DM, and from which account. It’s a bummer that this is missing. Doesn’t feel right without it. Please bring back and you’ll get that 5 star rating. Thanks!
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.
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.
Shows Timeline Updates Every Couple Minutes - Since the most recent update the menu bar icon is turning blue every couple minutes regardless as to wether or not there is a new post on my timeline (before it only did so if a new post showed up under one of the various tabs). It’s doing so consistently, and was not doing this prior to this update.
