Twitter has announced that its official Twitter for Mac app will be returning to Macs everywhere this fall. The social platform discontinued their native Mac app a little over a year ago.
Mac users were disappointed to learn the Twitter for Mac app would cease being updated back in February 2018. The company said it was discontinuing the app in order to focus its attention on a “great Twitter experience that’s consistent across all platforms.”
Twitter on Monday revealed the native app is on its way back to the Mac, thanks to Apple’s Project Catalyst, which allows developers to easily port their iOS apps over to the Mac, once macOS Catalina is released in the fall.
The following was posted on Monday from Twitter’s Support account:

Twitter says the app will be “fully native, with all the native features of a Mac app. Multiple windows, window resizing, drag and drop, dark mode, keyboard shortcuts, notifications and more!”
The all-new Twitter for Mac is scheduled for launch on macOS Catalina 10.15, which will be released in the fall.
