Tweetbot for Mac Released for $20 But in Limited Downloads Due to Twitter

Tweetbot has released their Mac version in the App Store and it’s available for $20. The price isn’t the surprising part of this release–it’s the fact limited numbers will be available for purchase due to Twitter’s restriction on token limits; the higher price is because Tapbots wants to be able to support the app once it’s no longer available for download:

Because of Twitter’s recent enforcement of token limits, we only have a limited number of tokens available for Tweetbot for Mac. These tokens dictate how many users Tweetbot for Mac can have. The app’s limit is separate from, but much smaller than, the limit for Tweetbot for iOS. Once we use up the tokens granted to us by Twitter, we will no longer be able to sell the app to new users. Tapbots will continue to support Tweetbot for Mac for existing customers at that time.

The current Tweetbot alpha/betas will soon expire and Tapbots encourages trial users to revoke their access tokens in your twitter settings to free up more for the company. Tweetbot for Mac was developed in part by Calgary developer Todd Thomas.
