Twitter has released an update to TweetDeck for Mac which includes support for macOS Mojave’s dark mode, improved crash reporting and a number of bug fixes.
TweetDeck for Mac is an app which is mostly neglected by Twitter. The last update for TweetDeck in the Mac App Store was over 3 years ago. This does not mean that Twitter does not actively update it though. Since TweetDeck is mostly a web app, wrapped with some native features, it regularly gets performance and feature updates.
Here’s the complete changelog for the new update:
- Updated to support macOS Mojave, including Dark Mode. You can also set a custom theme that doesn’t match the system setting
- Rebuilt TweetDeck for Mac to fix many crashes and to include better crash reporting, so we can fix bugs faster in the future
- Updated Help page to point to correct version
- Many other internal improvements
To change the theme in TweetDeck, go to Settings > General and switch between either dark or light under Theme.
TweetDeck is still the preferred choice for social media experts and hardcore users. Its user interface shows multiple timelines, which can be customized as required. The app has been popularly used for its capability to schedule tweets, across multiple Twitter accounts at the same time. The app also supports all the newest features that the Twitter website and mobile apps offer, so feature parity is never an issue.
Ever since Twitter killed their official app for macOS, TweetDeck is the only official app available in the Mac App Store. However, unless you are a power user, use Twitter for professional purposes or just need a free Twitter app, you are better off with an app like Tweetbot or Twitterrific. These apps offer features like timeline sync, enhanced media support, better filters, and much more. And since they are native to macOS, they provide a much better experience.
The new TweetDeck update is now available in the Mac App Store.
