→ The Apparent End of the Official Twitter Mac Client

Marco Arment commenting on MG Siegler’s tweet that Twitter for Mac is dead:

Of course it’s dead. The difference now is that Twitter won’t let anyone else replace it, probably because they can make far more money by making people use their website. (emphasis in original)

The next step for Twitter? Turn the mobile application into nothing more than webview wrappers for the website1.


  1. The wrappers will probably enhance the ability to track users’ activity even more than a standard browser.
