I’ve been a long time fan of Tweetbot from Tapbots and it has been my primary interface for Twitter for almost a decade. Most of the nonsense that Twitter has pushed on users hasn’t been on my radar since it never made its way to third party apps. That was both a blessing and curse.

With the slow demise of the Twitter that many of us used and enjoyed, I have been spending more of my time on Mastodon. While the official app isn’t terrible, the lack of a quality app has kept me from using my account that I’ve had since 2018. That has changed recently with the turmoil at the Birdsite. Tapbots has been developing their own client based off the hard work they put into Tweetbot (and Netbot) over the years. The result is a very smooth app that has officially launched on the App Store today. I have been in the beta for a few weeks and couldn’t be happier with the end result. If you are still on the fence about Mastodon, this app might help you feel more at home if you came from Tweetbot.
