It is ending support for its dedicated desktop Mac application, announced by Twitter. It has pulled it from the web and from Apple’s App Store.

Before pulling by Twitter the app had an average user rating on the Apple App Store of 1.7 out of 5.
@Twitter Support tweeted, “we are focusing our efforts on a great Twitter experience that’s consistent across platforms. So, starting today the Twitter for Mac app will no longer be available for download.”
According to The Verge ,”that is an accurate approximation of most people’s attitude toward the software which has never quite been as robust as third-party clients like Tweetbot or even in-house services like Tweetdeck,” and the Verge also added that ” twitter failed time and again to keep its Mac app up to date with the service’s latest features, it took the company more than seven months to bring “Moments” which launched in October of 2015, to its Mac client.”
