The great news for MAC users is that they can now download Twitter for MAC. It’s not that Twitter was never available for MAC because all the MAC users enjoyed the amazing features of Twitter for a long time.
In fact, Twitter for MAC had similar features like Twitter for iPhone. The reason why Twitter app disappeared from the MAC store is that Twitter focused on mobile apps for a long time. Thus, the Twitter app for MAC was neglected for a long time. As a result, it disappeared from the app store as it wasn’t compatible with the latest version of iOS.
Apple announced Project Catalyst for macOS 10.15 Catalina, which makes it easy for developers to bring their iPad projects to macOS as native Mac apps. We are excited that Project Catalyst will enable us to bring Twitter back to the Mac by leveraging our existing iOS codebase. We’ll also be able to add native Mac features on top of our existing iPad experience, while keeping our maintenance efficient as we continue to improve this shared codebase in the years to come.
However, the developers have now put in all the efforts to make this app available for the MAC users. Fortunately, they’ve successfully launched Twitter for MAC with their endless efforts.
