Twitter says goodbye to Apple: your app will no longer be compatible with Mac

Twitter has announced that it will withdraw its official Mac application in favor of a web client. The social network recently shared a tweet in which he communicated his decision.

Apparently, the application for macOS of Twitter will remain active for 30 days . After that period, it will no longer be compatible with Mac. In fact, as of today, it can no longer be downloaded from the Mac App Store.

    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.

In the tweet, Twitter indicates that they will focus their efforts on providing users with a better experience on all its platforms. Be that as it may, they have not wanted to mention exactly why they will withdraw their official macOS application.

Twitter will be used exclusively via web on Mac 

The social network has probably been overtaken by other third-party clients such as Tweetbot or Twitterific. These types of applications offer some special features that Twitter does not have.

From Twitter, now, recommend using the website for Mac in order to get the best experience . The withdrawal of the official application is not so surprising, it was very abandoned for many years, despite the fact that macOS had redesigned its system.

Going one step further, the death of Twitter could mean that the App Store for Mac is a big failure. Apple prepares universal applications for iOS 12, so that users can enjoy the same advantages in iOS and macOS , but ... can we see in the future a unified App Store between both operating systems? What do you think about the withdrawal of the Twitter for Mac app?
