Back in October we found out that Twitter was working on a brand new version of the app for the Mac, something which has been a few years in waiting. The update is free and is a complete overhaul with a brand new design which beings it inline with the iPhone version as well as a dark theme, which matches the dark theme on OS X.

“Twitter for Mac is getting the update you’ve been asking for. Now it looks and feels more like the Twitter you carry with you everyday.”

Twitter for Mac now finally supports Direct Messages, while before you could read them it was never possible to reply or even make new ones. Also the app now lets users mute accounts and use Direct Messages with groups.

In addition, Twitter have added a Today Widget for the Mac Notification Centre to let you know of trending tweets and highlighted ones. Twitter for Mac is available now from the Mac App Store.
