An update to the Icon Factory’s Twitter client for Mac has been released via the Mac App Store.

I’ve been using Twitterrific 4 since its launch, and it’s become my favorite client to date. This update fixes several of the issues that bothered me, including links sent to Safari opening in the foreground, and the inability to remove the icon from the menubar.

Here’s the complete list of changes…

  • Growl support to display notifications for mentions and direct messages
  • Ability to hide the app’s dock icon
  • Ability to hide the menu bar icon
  • Option to open all links in the background


  • New keyboard shortcuts for RT & RT w/comment (option-R & option-N)
  • Keyboard commands for page up / page down
  • “Customize Toolbar…” added to Window menu
  • Clarified wording on image error dialog
  • Improved error messages for failed user actions (like reporting a spammer)
  • Alert reminder to log in with Twitter username instead of email
