On Friday, Twitter introduced that it might abandon its lesser-loved Mac app, directing customers to Twitter.com as a substitute. The corporate declared that it’s going to refocus its efforts on “a terrific Twitter expertise that’s constant throughout platforms” fairly than persevering with improvement for Twitter for Mac, a message that doesn’t sound nice for TweetDeck lovers. The Twitter for Mac app now not lives within the Mac App Retailer, although its one and a half star score lives on within the hearts and minds of its few tenacious customers, possibly.

Through the years, Twitter has typically seen its personal official app eclipsed by slicker, extra feature-rich third-party shoppers, which it generally buys up. Twitter purchased the software program that advanced into Twitter for Mac (previously referred to as Tweetie for Mac) back in 2010, although it’s largely believed to have languished following the acquisition.

Many Twitter customers are expressing their issues that the corporate might equally sundown TweetDeck, a well-loved shopper with multi-column group, list-making instruments and strong notifications that the corporate acquired for $40 million again in 2011. For a standard firm, ending a product that everybody feels fairly good about wouldn’t be a possible potential end result, however Twitter isn’t precisely identified for making decisions in lockstep with the wishes of its opinionated person base.

Whereas most individuals aren’t prone to mourn the passing of Twitter for Mac, the selection does spotlight the gaping gap the place a stable multi-platform shopper ought to go. Contemplating its sources and the teachings the corporate ought to have realized from pointless bickering with its improvement neighborhood over time, it doesn’t appear to be an enormous ask.
