After years of silence on the desktop front, Twitter Inc. has finally incremented its OS X client application addressing some widely reported complaints.“Twitter for Mac 2.2 includes several improvements we think you will love,” says the microblogging company.
First and foremost, Twitter is proud to say that its new OS X client is now fully compliant with Retina displays.
If you have one of those fancy new MacBooks with millions and millions of pixels crammed inside their LCDs, Twitter will look much better to you.
“Now Twitter is even more vibrant and detailed on the highest resolution Mac notebooks. With this update, Tweets will be clearer and sharper, creating a more vivid experience,” says the company.
Something even more users will be excited about, the Tweet composer has been enhanced to make posting faster and more enjoyable.
If you add pictures, the composer window displays a neat preview now, and you can upload the photos to pic.twitter.com.
“It’s easier than ever to share photos,” Twitter states on its blog.
“Simply click the camera icon in the lower-left corner of the Tweet compose box, and choose a photo to share. If you prefer, you can still drag and drop photos from the desktop.”
The app icons have been updated, along with some other visual elements. 14 new languages are now supported: Dutch, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, and Turkish.
In addition to all these changes, Twitter for Mac now sports keyboard shortcuts and support for multiple accounts and timelines.
Other minute tweaks are also included, and fans of the application will undoubtedly notice them.
