Shortly after launching its new Twitter update for iPhone earlier this week, Twitter for Mac 3 is out on the Mac App Store with a refreshed design and a set of new features.

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… expand full story

Twitter for Mac updated with Notification Center integration, performance improvements, more

Twitter for Mac is continuously receiving updates and today it received a highly requested feature: Notification Center integration. Users can configure the setting in the preference window within the app.

OS X already offered Twitter integration, but notifications deferred to the web rather than its native client. It was less than a month ago when the app received its first update in countless months, and today’s update demonstrates Twitter’s dedication to its continued development.

Twitter 2.2.1 is now available in the Mac App Store:
