The Iconfactory had a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised over $100,000 to revive its Mac Twitter client. Today, the developer is already delivering its first update with a variety of new features for muffle and mutes, status indicators, automatic scrolling. There are also a good mix of improvements and bug fixes in the latest version.

Here’s are the release notes:

What’s New in Version 5.1

Added our two most popular feature requests: management for muffles & mutes and a setting for keeping timelines scrolled to the top. Tons of other smaller improvements, too!


Muffle and Mutes:

  •  Select a tweet then “Muffle Tweet” in the ⋯ Action menu to create one
  • Any selected text in the tweet appears as a choice in the menu
  • Twitter clients can be muffled by selecting the “via” item in the menu
  • Use the Muffles panel in Preferences to manage your muffle and mutes
  • Changes are automatically synced between macOS and iOS

Automatic scrolling:

  • In General preferences, select “Keep timeline pinned to top”
  • Scroll a timeline to the newest tweet at the top
  • Any new tweets will then automatically scroll into view

Status indicators for new mentions or messages:

  • A dot is displayed in the menu bar icon
  • A badge is displayed on the Dock icon
  • System Preferences > Notifications can be used to turn off Dock badge
