- New playback controls to easily scrub while watching videos
Appearance of controls match the selected theme
Improved thumbnail detection for tweets with Flickr links

- Changed the Open Tweet shortcut from CMD-O to CMD-Shift-O for consistency with iOS
Over on iPhone, Twitterrific now has improved VoiceOver and accessibility support, including the ability to perform actions from another account such as replying, quoting, and liking tweets.
Alongside the new features, both versions of the app get a new "Stay Safe" icon, which shows the familiar Twitterrific bird wearing a fetching face mask.
