Twitter decides to kill its app for Apple's Mac

The company's reasoning behind this move is that it's focusing its efforts on a great Twitter experience that's consistent across all platforms which is why it has made a decision to pull the Twitter for Mac app.

Just one day after Twitter announced that it pulled and will stop supporting its app for macOS, Twitterrific reduced the price of their macOS app from $19.99 to just $7.99. "Twitter on web", the company suggested in a tweet. What does Twitter recommend as a replacement?

Again, it's no surprise.

Third-party apps such as Tweetbot and in-house dashboard apps like TweetDeck consistently provided a more user-friendly experience than Twitter's own Mac app.

Before being pulled out by Twitter, the app had an average user rating on the Apple App Store i.e. 1.7 out of 5.

Part of this dissatisfaction comes from the fact that Twitter repeatedly failed to keep its Mac app up to date with its latest updates. This is a native Mac Twitter client offering a full set of features, support for multiple accounts, multiple lists, column-based views, and more. That said, using Twitter on the web doesn't always prove to be the best experience for some users, as it could get cumbersome, too.

Twitter finally decides to take down its less-popular app on Apple Mac. As always, if you have anything to share, feel free to sound them off in the comments section below!
