Tweetie developer: Tweetie for Mac is alive and well
April 10, 2010 by Beatweek
Twitter’s acquisition of Tweetie for iPhone (and its developer Loren Brichter) has led users of sister product Tweetie for Mac to ponder the future of the product; while Twitter has made it clear that Tweetie will serve as the basis for both the official Twitter iPhone and and official iPad app, the company made no mention of the Mac version.
As it turns out, Brichter appears to be continuing work on Tweetie 2 for Mac despite the acquisition, according to a post he made today on some Mac forums:
“Hey all – first of all I apologize for any confusion, things have been a bit crazy! I just want to says I’m blasting through the todo list to get a beta put together as fast as I can, the Mac UI stuff I’ve been prototyping is just too cool to have anything else happen to it. Sorry for keeping it short, gotta get back to coding!”
[Thanks to John Gruber – yes, that John Gruber - for spotting this.]
