No more manual timeline refreshes on Twitter for Mac! You can set the app to automatically stream Tweets and keep them at the top of your timeline.
When Twitter pulled support for its Mac desktop app back in 2018, many users were left unhappy. Still, they were rewarded late last year with a brand new Catalyst-powered version of its Twitter for Mac app that was built especially for macOS Catalina.
While the new app made many users happy again, it lacked one important feature that most users wanted: a real-time feed.
As a result, many users turned to third-party solutions like Tweetbot and Twitterrific for that, but Twitter removed support from those clients.
Now, Twitter has fixed things with the app’s v8.17 version update, which lets users pin their “Latest Tweets” to the top of their timeline, allowing Tweets to refresh in real-time. The feature was announced by Twitter support via Tweet earlier this week:
“What’s that new button in your timeline settings Sparkles on Twitter for Mac? It’s a “Pin to top” toggle! Turning it on will keep you at the top of your timeline and let the latest Tweets stream in –– no need to manually refresh your timeline.”
You can download Twitter for Mac from the Mac App Store for free.
