Twitter Has Removed Its App For Apple Device

Twitter has declared that it is stooping support for its devoted desktop application for Mac and that it has pulled it from the company’s App Store and from the web. “We’re focusing our efforts on a great Twitter experience that’s consistent across platforms. So, starting today the Twitter for Mac app will no longer be available for download,” @TwitterSupport tweeted late last week.

Support for Mac from Twitter will also conclude in 30 Days, the micro-blogging platform claimed. This indicates that consumers will have to use the services such as Tweetdeck or website or 3rd-party apps. The app, prior to Twitter removed it, had a standard consumer rating of 1.7 out of 5 on the Apple App Store.

That is a precise approximation of attitude from most people toward the software that has never quite been as healthy as 3rd-party clients such as Tweetbot or even in-house services such as Tweetdeck, as per The Verge. “Twitter was unsuccessful time and again to keep its application for Mac up to date with the latest features of the service. It took the firm over 7 Months to bring “Moments” that rolled out in October 2015, to its Mac users,” The Verge claimed further.

Recently, Twitter has booted out the consumers and makers of deepfakes. Deepfakes are nothing but fake porn videos of celebrities made with the help of algorithm of machine learning. Deepfakes are in infringement to terms of use of Twitter, as per which you may not post or share intimate photos or videos of someone that were produced or distributed without their consent.

“We will remove any account we recognize as the initial poster of intimate content that has been distributed or produced without the consent of the subject. We will also remove any account devoted to posting this kind of material,” claimed a spokesperson of Twitter to the U.S. tech website Motherboard this week in an interview.
