Tweeting for OS X

macOS & Mac Apps

I've just recently begun getting into twitter, and I have heard several times on the podcast about Tweetings. I have it for my iPhone, and that one seems to be working correctly. The OS X version however, seems to have a bug. When I open it, Voice Over becomes very sluggish, and I hear "busy" whenever I try to hit keys. All in all i cannot use it at all at this point. Any suggestions on who to remedy this?

I know you'd like to stick with your prefered app ubt personally if it drives me that crazy it's off my mac, no two ways about it. Look up yourufukurou I think, lol I can't spell it. Just doa search for night owl and you'll find it. It's accessible with sounds differing for each thing, tweet, message mention. Personally because i get so many tweets I muted the home line but mentions and dms I get notified for. good luck Plus don't forget the update for the app either isn't out, or the people creating it might've dropped the app altogether.

I might just try that then. I'm certainly hitting a dead end with this one.

I personally use the official twitter app for OS X. It has some unusual interface layout in places, reads both the username and screen name and doesn't have a lot of mute features, but is in my opinion more modern than Night owl. The thing that frustrated me most about it is that it can't deal with quoted tweets very well, and that any links just appear in the shortened form in Nightowl. The twitter app doesn't have either of those 2 problems, plus can also play some videos and audioboom posts inside the app itself. What I would suggest you do is try both and stick to whichever you prefer.

I've heard the same thing. Use the native twitter app, or night owl, both of which can be found in the app store. Feel fre to follow @tffppodcast and @ke7zum which are both of my twitter accounts. I have another one but that one I won't give just here.
