    Since twitter removed their macOS app (which hadn’t been updated in a year anyway despite a lot of protestations from many of us, soundcloud converter), I’ve been using Tweeten, which is essentially Tweetdeck but actually gets updated. I’ve tried the paid options and ultimately found issues with both Tweetbot and Tweetdeck that just didn’t work for me personally. My concern with Tweetdeck is that there is no reason on the face of it for Twitter to pull it as well. And Twitter could also pull the plug on third-party solutions generally by further restricting or removing the APIs. That’s why no third-party app, for example, has Moments and a few other twitter-only features.
