Twitter has given its Mac app a significant update today, introducing a revamped design and various exciting features. This brings it into line with the social network’s more frequently updated iOS app.
The new version 4.0 of the Mac app now “looks and feels more like the Twitter you carry with you everyday”, according to the release notes. Twitter adds that it has “built in some of the most-requested features so your Twitter for Mac experience combines what you love about Twitter with the elegance you expect on a Mac.”
The most immediately noticeable improvement is the overall design, which now comes with icons, buttons and interactions more closely matching those of the iOS app. There’s also a new Dark Theme, while more practical fresh additions include inline video playback – allowing videos to be played within your feed – and Quote Tweet, which enables you to comment directly on your retweets.
This updated version of Twitter for Mac is now available for free download from the Mac App Store.
