After much teasing (almost torture) from the developers, Tapbots has released a Mac version of it’s popular iOS Twitter client: Tweetbot, on their site. To the surprise of many though, rather than being a final release, they have gone ahead and released it as a public alpha.
“We’ve decided to release it as a public alpha to a) motivate us to finish faster, and b) get feedback to help us build the best Mac incarnation of Tweetbot we can make. You can love it or hate it, but rest assured it will only get much much better from here.”
Tapbots has not yet decided the price of the final version, but you can think of the public alpha as a long term trial. The final version should be available on the Mac App Store. For those of us who have been using the outdated Twitter for Mac client, this comes as great news.
