Mark Jardine of Tapbots, in announcing the Tweetbot for Mac Public Alpha:
Tweetbot for Mac is finally available! However it may not be quite as you had hoped. Developing for the Mac is no easy task, especially a full-featured Twitter client. However, we’ve gotten to a point where while not complete, it is useable. 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.
True story: I thought I was dreaming when I was skimming my timeline earlier today and saw someone tweet about “Tweetbot for Mac tips”. Needless to say, hearing this news made me so happy.
I downloaded the alpha and have it running as I write this. This is going to be great.
