9to5 Mac suggests that Twitter will cease development of its Mac client. I sincerely hope that does not happen, because I depend on these indicator lights. I must monitor several accounts. The Twitter for Mac app lets me see which one has received a new message, mention or DM at a glance, via these handy lights.
Other apps don’t do this as clearly or at all. It’s not a convenience for me, it’s something I depend on. As much as I might not like it, I must monitor all these accounts all day long.
I’ve been wondering why Twitter would kill the Mac app, and my buddy Berserk Hippo make a good point: “[Killing the app makes sense] It does if they want everyone using the web because that gets them the most money.”
I cannot and will not use Twitter in a browser. This change would not only be an inconvenience, it would affect my workflow in a significant and detrimental way.
