Twitter Pulls Mac App From App Store, Will End Support in 30 Days


In a tweet sent out yesterday afternoon, Twitter announced that they are pulling the Mac app from the App Store. The company also announced that they will end support for the app within 30 days.


The company says that it is discontinuing the app to focus its “efforts on a great Twitter experience that’s consistent across platforms.” Starting today, if you want to get a full Twitter experience on the Mac, you are encouraged to use Twitter on the web.


The company’s app for the Mac has never received that much attention and was lacking in feature compared to its mobile apps and its web solution. Last September, Twitter decided to remove their app from the Apple Watch, as it was presumably not gaining as much user attention as they originally expected.

For those who still want an app for Twitter on the Mac, you can checkout third-party solutions such as Twitterrific or Tweetbot.

    I suspect the Windows 10 app will soon follow.

    “We’re focusing our efforts on a great Twitter experience that’s consistent across platforms”, so after shutting down the Apple watch app and the Mac app to help keep things “consistent”, they might as well end iPhone support too. That would help their experience be even more consistent.

    ah, I actually like twitter app on Mac as I get distracted when looking away from my laptop.

  • Mohamed Basheer

    Makes sense. Not many use an app in a PC. Windows will lose its app soon, is my guess.
