Twitter for Mac updated with new design, photo previews


Twitter is on a roll updating its iOS app earlier this week and its Mac app today. Version 3.0 of the official Twitter client  for OS X sports a new design and a handful of new features.Besides a fresh UI that matches the look and feel of its mobile clients, the new Twitter for Mac 3.0 now includes inline photo previews. This feature allows you to view a thumbnail preview of an image in your timeline. Tapping on the image will display it at its full resolution.

Inline image previews is only the tip of the iceberg, the full changelog for version 3.0 is as follows:

  • More visual and engaging timelines: Previews of Twitter photos will be front and center in Tweets. To see more of the photo, just click. If you want to disable previews, just go to preferences and uncheck “image previews.”
  • Get more from Tweets: Check out the tweet detail pane to see the conversation around a tweet as well as favorite and retweet counts.
  • Beautiful profiles: Profiles now show header photos to display the unique personality of every user. Learn more about them by seeing who they follow and are followed by, their lists, and their custom timelines.
  • Updated design: We’ve refreshed the overall look and feel of the app.
