Tweetbot 2.4 Update Brings a Plethora of Changes Including a New Search View

Tweetbot has been updated to version 2.4 that includes numerous changes such as a new search view, Read It Later support, and keyword mute filters.

     People often ask me why Tweetbot is the best Twitter client IMO, and I always point to the multitude of awesome things it does, which is usually met with “oh my twitter client can do that too.” It’s not a matter of that, but rather how well the app is put together. Tweetbot <3
