Submission + - Twitter kills its Mac app, and that's a good thing (

BrianFagioli writes: Today, Twitter officially kills the Mac app. Without warning, the company pulled the app from the Mac App Store and issued the following tweet.

âoeWe're focusing our efforts on a great Twitter experience that's consistent across platforms. So, starting today the Twitter for Mac app will no longer be available for download, and in 30 days will no longer be supported.

For the full Twitter experience on Mac, visit Twitter on web.â

If you already have the app installed on your Mac, you can continue using it for the next month. After that, you will have to make a decision — access Twitter with your web browser or opt for a third-party app. Two such popular apps are Tweetbot ($10) and Twitterrific ($20).
