Sometime last year, MacHeist bundled Tweetie with other apps and they promised users beta access to Tweetie 2. As you know, Tweetie 2 is now Twitter For Mac on the Mac App Stoe, and no beta took place. Think again:
The screenshot above is the full array of what the app calls “Super Secret Features”. This is only available for anyone who purchased the MacHeist bundle. They get special codes and instructions to unlock them in an email.
“It’s been an epic wait. Crazy things have happened. We’re now all 9 months older. But Tweetie 2 is finally here, in the form of the official Twitter client for Mac, now available for free on the App Store.
“But wait!” You say. “What about us nanoBundle 2 customers? We in part bought into the future of Tweetie! You guys haven’t abandoned us have you?”
We haven’t forgotten about you guys, and neither has Loren…
You see, while everyone is able to check out Twitter for Mac today, only you guys are able to enter the backdoor and unlock access to pre-release builds and a secret experimental features menu. Yes, we know. This is totally MacHeist.
The entrance is hidden, but straightforward to find and unlock. You’ll want to have your MacHeist Tweetie license number handy.
First, visit the Mac App Store and download Twitter for Mac.
Click the Help menu and hold command + option + control at the same time.
Finally, take a moment of self-satisfaction as you unlock the near future.”
So there you go. While you didn’t get an actual beta before the app’s release, it now looks like you get beta features before they’re made public.
