Twitter for Mac now supports Twitter photo previews inline with the timeline. Clicking a preview displays the image at full resolution.
Twitter profiles now support cover photos on par with Twitter’s other apps. With its refreshed design also comes a new, centered icon and visual changes throughout the app. The icon brings its appearance in line with the Twitter-owned TweetDeck for Mac with minor differences.
While there was once a time when Twitter for Mac was presumed dead, it certainly seems alive and well which is reassuring for Mac users. Check out screen shots and the changelog below…
What’s New in Version 3.0.0
This release comes with a number of enhancements and changes.
More visual and engaging timelines
• Previews of Twitter photos will be front and center in Tweets. To see more of the photo, just click. If you want to disable previews, just go to preferences and uncheck “image previews.”
Get more from Tweets
• Check out the tweet detail pane to see the conversation around a tweet as well as favorite and retweet counts.
• Profiles now show header photos to display the unique personality of every user. Learn more about them by seeing who they follow and are followed by, their lists, and their custom timelines.
• We’ve refreshed the overall look and feel of the app.
