Under the guise of praising the new MacBook Pro's gorgeous retina display, Tapbots' Mark Jardine just confirmed the existence of the Tweetbot Mac app.
He was lauding the pretty screen, posting a picture that showed Tweetbot for OS X open on his laptop. When asked later, he wouldn't say anything directly about the client, but he posted a a higher-res picture that gave a closer glimpse—and Tweetbot for Mac looks pretty similar to its iPhone counterpart. The Verge said Tapbots indeed answered in the affirmative the app is coming, and we've reached out to the company for more information. If it is, in fact, coming, many users will be pleased. Twitter for Mac hasn't been updated in well over a year, meaning people are probably looking around for other viable alternatives. With a clean, thoughtfully designed interface and tons of customizable features that make it simple to tweet, retweet, Tweetbot is a very good one. [The Verge]
