A few weeks ago, I took a look at the best Twitter apps for iPhone. It was interesting to read the replies I got on Twitter from people who felt strongly one way or another about third-party apps or using the official Twitter one. People who like third-party apps often prefer them for reasons that do make sense. People who are fine with the official Twitter app (based on how they use Twitter) should stick with it. The great thing about the ecosystem (it’s hanging on by a thread) is that both third-party and first-party options work for people. It’s really one of those “what’s best for you” situations. This week, I want to look at the best Twitter app for Mac. Because Twitter killed its official app for Mac last March, third-party apps are all you can use (except for TweetDeck).

TechCrunch has published an internal Twitter email that includes the company’s explanation for shutting down their API that powered many features in useful apps like Tweetbot and Twitterrific.
While the email likely won’t convince irritated Twitter users who are seeing features removed from their favorite apps, the internal communication is the most open Twitter has been about its thinking on the matter:
