How bad is Twitter for Mac? So bad that it fails to support numerous featuresintroduced with fanfare by Twitter itself. The new Mute feature, which lets you block out communications from people you don’t want to hear from without blocking them entirely? Not only can you not initiate a mute from Twitter for Mac, but I’ve found that when I mute someone from Twitter’s Web interface, many of their tweets still appear in my timeline.
One of the few differentiators between Twitter and other social networks is that it does have desktop apps. But if Twitter can’t support them to include the latest features, or even to work properly, then why continue to support them? These apps represent a huge opportunity for Twitter, if they can get them right.
