Tweetbot for Mac Receives iOS Version's Media Timeline and Profile Cover Image Support
Tapbots recently released an update to the Mac version of its popular Twitter client, Tweetbot, porting over a few key features from the iOS app like a dedicated media timeline. Along with the usual bug fixes and performance improvements, Tweetbot version 1.3 brings the title’s media timeline to the Mac, which automatically filters out text-only tweets to leave those posts containing pictures or video.
Originally introduced in Tweetbot for iOS in April, the media timeline aggregates tweets containing pictures from Instagram and other sources, along with videos or other media like short clips from Vine, and places them in a single feed separate from the normal timeline. On the Mac, users can enter the media-only mode by pressing Command + F and clicking on the new rectangular icon located next to the search dialogue box. Pictures can be dynamically scaled by adjusting Tweetbot’s window size.
Another addition regarding media handling includes support for Profile Cover Images, which appears at the top of a user’s profile window. Other enhancements include redesigned retweet and favorite count detail windows and added gesture control like double clicking the titlebar above a profile view to scroll to the top.
Fixed in the latest version was an issue in which unread items obscured notification and error messages attached to post windows, as well as a glitch that would allow text to be editable after a tweet was sent.
Those of you who are interested in Tweetbot for Mac can download the app which comes in at 4.9 MB and can be purchased from the App Store for $19.99.
