Tweetbot for Mac Now Available in the Mac App Store
For a long time, the Twitter community has been awaiting the final release of Tweetbot for Mac. Back in July, Tapbots announced that they were launching Tweetbot alpha, followed by a beta, for Mac users to try out for free until it went live in the Mac App Store. That time has finally come.
Tweetbot can now be downloaded on Mac computers through the Mac App Store for a price of $19.99. This sounds like a steep price, but Tapbots explains that the price is fair because Tweetbot is a "quality piece of software" that you will use on a daily basis. Tapbots also makes mention about the limited amount of tokens:

All of the alpha and beta versions of the software will expire, meaning the only way to use Tweetbot for Mac is to purchase the full version from the Mac App Store.
If you like using Tweetbot on your iOS device, this application will complement it very nicely on your Mac. If you don’t mind paying the premium, you can download it from this link.

And so it begins: Twitter's new guidelines finally start to hit home. This is not going to go over well with anyone—customers, Twitter, nor Tapbots.

So mountain lion costs £13.99 and tweetbot costs £20..... Doesn't seem right somehow

Agreed! Twitter will suffer for imposing limits like this! Just because they want everyone to use the stock Apps from them or the Web version doesn't mean any of them are fully featured enough for some power users and most normal users too, stock is for beginners in my opinion.

I have no problem using the standard Twitter app as is and for me to even consider the "few extra benefits" of tweetbot It would have to be free - $0.99
I simply don't see the value over what I already have, certainly not $20.00 worth regardless of what their excuse is.

$20 is way too much, I dont see other twitter apps priced at that, wouldnt they have the same token limit? Having that limit in the first place does suck for them though, but still.
I personally never minded using the official twitter app but the fact that it is STILL not retina ready is just unacceptable.

I like tweetbot & i have it for my iPad & iPhone, but why would i pay $20 for it when it's cheaper as An App for the other idevices.
