Twitter Discontinues macOS App

When the Mac App Store released, it remember Twitter was one of the first apps I downloaded. It’s clear that Mac apps function very differently than iOS apps. Mac apps should take advantage of the greater power and screen space of a Mac. When it doesn’t, it functions best as a website. People use websites more for these smaller apps. Twitter is noticing this change and allocating it’s resources into its website for desktops. Twitter is discontinuing it’s macOS app. I can understand this. When you pay a team to maintain the entire social network on many platforms, it can become obvious that it isn’t worth supporting a Mac app that probably isn’t frequently used, when the web version works just as well.
