Twitter for Mac is no more

While Twitter may be a largely mobile service for most people who live their lives via iOS and Android, those who use a Mac have been able to take advantage of the official Twitter app ever since the social giant bought Tweetie almost eight years ago. Now, it's going away.

We’re 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, and in 30 days will no longer be supported.

For the full Twitter experience on Mac, visit Twitter on web.

That's bad news for Mac Twitter users and bad news for the Mac in general, but if you need a new Twitter client in the aftermath of this news, you could most certainly do worse than Twitterrific.
