On the future of Twitter: Developer reactions

I've already had my rant, as have John Gruber, Matthew Panzarino, Lex Friedman, M.G. Siegler, Jerry Hildenbrand, Benjamin Brooks, Shawn Blanc, and many others across the blogsphere. Which is good, because tech bloggers, especially Apple and mobile tech bloggers, tend to be monster Twitter users (and not the automated social media marketing types -- actual heavy-duty users the type of which helped spin up the service to begin with.) Yet we, like any user, will be challenged only so far as the apps we use to engage Twitter are challenged, and those apps are made by developers, and those developers are at the front lines.

Tweetbot, our favorite iPhone and iPad Twitter app for power users, has just hit the Mac. But here's the thing -- it's not for sale yet, it's a free alpha version. Alpha is what comes before beta, and way before Mac App Store release. It means there'll be bugs -- and they'd welcome you to report them -- and there won't be Mac App Store specific features like iCloud sync or Mountain Lion notifications. But there will be a lot of what makes Tweetbot the iOS app many of you know and love. Tweetbot's developers have explained all the details on the Tapbots blog.
