    Tapbots today released a significant update for its latest Tweetbot 4 Twitter client, adding support for the Apple Watch. On the Apple Watch, the default view is the Activity Feed, which includes Mentions, Favorites (soon to be likes), and Follows - the content you'd most likely want to view on a small screen.

    From the Activity Feed, it's possible to tap to view individual tweets to Reply, Retweet, or Favorite, and tapping on a name also leads to a profile where a Direct Message can be sent to a user or someone can be followed. A force press on the Apple Watch within Tweetbot will bring up the option to send a tweet, and composing a message is done via voice dictation.

    Today's update is the second major update to Tweetbot 4, which Tapbots released a month ago. Tweetbot 4, a newly universal app for the iPhone and the iPad, introduced a redesigned look, new Statistics and Activity Views, and support for features like split-screen multitasking on the iPad. A later update also brought support for 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

    Tweetbot 4 can be downloaded from the App Store for $4.99. [Direct Link]

    Is this what people are using their Apple Watches for? Reading Twitter? I can't imagine it's a more convenient experience than just pulling your phone out of your pocket.

    I was hoping for recent tweets but guess not.

    Question - does anyone know which site is tracking the number of native apps already migrated to the Apple Watch?

    Well, except that you can't. Like Twitterrific, Tweetbot for Apple Watch is designed for interacting with mentions and direct messages.

    You think that pulling out your phone is easier than glancing down at your watch?

    That's absolutely perfect for me! I want to be able to see mentions and DM's right away, but don't need to constantly view my entire feed.
