This should come as little surprise, considering Twitter outsourced the development of its Mac app.

In a tweet from its support account, Twitter announced that it will be pulling the official app from the Mac App Store, making it no longer be available to download.

The company says that it is discontinuing the app to focus its "efforts on a great Twitter experience that's consistent across platforms". "Twitter on web", the company suggested in a tweet.

Worse, I blame my good friend Dave Hamilton, for starting a very active thread earlier today on just how bad the Twitter for Mac client is.

We'll be doing a roundup of Mac Twitter clients on Monday. As stated, active Twitter users have already switched to better third-party applications.

The company recommended that Mac users visit Twitter using a web browser instead.

It's not hard to see why the firm is axing Twitter for Mac - it's long neglected the application, failing to keep it updated with platform's latest and greatest features. Last September, Twitter made a decision to remove their app from the Apple Watch, as it was presumably not gaining as much user attention as they originally expected.

It's easy to imagine that not many people, if any, will miss the Twitter desktop client for Mac, considering how clunky and lacking in features it's been.

If you don't like the TweetDeck experience, Mac users also have Tweetbot for Mac as an option.
