Tweetie is unarguably one of the most robust iPhone Twitter clients, so you wouldn’t expect anything less of the desktop version.

Tweetie’s straightforward and minimalist appearance makes it a breeze to use. Yet, it’s a looker and quite capable.

It’s no wonder we’re giving away 10 copies of Tweetie worth $200 as one of the must-have commercial Mac apps!

Think you’re lucky enough to grab one?

After entering your Twitter credentials, you are taken to a window with your Timeline.


Navigating through your replies, messages and searches is made simple with the small vertical menu on the left hand side of the app.

When scrolling through your, or other users’ timelines, replies directed to you are highlighted in blue.

The icon in the menu bar turns blue when there are new tweets in your timeline, otherwise it remains grey.

From the menu bar, you can quickly access your or other user’s profiles, and switch between your profiles if you have multiple Twitter accounts. From any given profile, you can access a user’s timeline, favourites, replies directed at them, and their profile info.

Tweetie has incorporated five URL shortening services:, TinyURL,, and DiggBar, as well as six services for sharing your images: yFrog, TwitPic, Twitgoo, Posterous, and And it doesn’t end there. With Tweetie, you can record video directly from your Mac, using a webcam, and share it with your Twitter followers through yFrog. Images uploaded to these services, as well as profile pictures, will open in a slick HUD window.

One of the ways in which Tweetie truly excels is the way it handles conversations. Opening a reply, Tweetie will list all the tweets in that conversation, with the most recent at the top of the list.

For those of you who are fans of keyboard shortcuts, Tweetie has a shortcut for just about everything, from creating a new tweet, to quickly switching between your timeline, replies and direct messages.

If you already use the iPhone app, or if you’ve been looking for a simple but powerful Twitter client to use when you’re at your Mac – Tweetie is perfect for you. Download the free, ad-supported version and take it for a spin.
