Twitter finally decides to take down its less-popular app on Apple Mac. Support for the app will be dropped as well, in 30 days. Twitter had outsourced the development of the app to a studio in Seattle called Black Pixel.

Twitter has pulled the application from the web and from Apple's App Store on Mac. The company said that it's "focusing our efforts on a great Twitter experience that's consistent across platforms".

There really isn't any recourse for now, and Twitter is even endorsing that Mac users access the web version for now.

We'll be doing a roundup of Mac Twitter clients on Monday.

Twitter had some news for its Mac users ahead of the weekend - it is killing off its Mac app.

In any case, Twitter for Mac will no longer be available in a month. That number also serves as an accurate approximation of users' attitude toward the client, which has never seemed as robust and smooth as third-party Twitter clients such as Tweetbot, Hootsuite, or TweetDeck.

Head over to and you'll get the service's own interface, which is split into columns that give Twitter users more customization options than they get in the regular Twitter interface.

It's not hard to see why the firm is axing Twitter for Mac - it's long neglected the application, failing to keep it updated with platform's latest and greatest features. Do you already use another Twitter client for your Mac or Windows PC?
