Edit: After half day, my wife’s Mac started having the same problem. I have then applied the solution that I found in the Apple
Mac Official Twitter Application
Mac Twitter is quite a lot like Tweetie, its predecessor- both for iPhone and Mac.
There are 2 versions (Tweetie and Twitter) that use the same interface, but Twitter has the look and feel of a mobile application rather than a Mac application.
The interface of Twitter application is quite lean to be a desktop application, but with its simple design might look best on latest laptops by Apple, like Macbook Air.
This app comes with the typical Twitter features that are available on Twitter mobile and desktop applications. There are multiple accounts of Twitter that can be added. Apart from that, you can also view profile info of people, retweet the tweets you like, send messages, access lists and trends, and save searches.
There are some new features on the Mac app like you can send retweets and replies, and even star your favorite tweets. And you do not have to Control click a certain tweet to select its features. You can just position your mouse to upper right part of the tweet to perform the preferred action.
This app comes with the regular keyboard shortcuts as well. But in case you do not like shortcuts, then you can click on drop down arrows that are at the application bottom, and this will bring up new tweet windows. This implies that instead of 1 click, now you have to make 2 clicks.
Mac Twitter makes use of t.co that shortens the URLs in messages. Though this link will not appear, but the displayed string will show the remaining characters that are present after the URL is shortened. The shortened links are approximately 20 characters long.
The Mac Twitter will surely undergo changes and upgrades, but there will be no replacements as of now, and this version is not going to replace the present clients like TweetDeck and YoruFukurou.
