Popular Twitter client Twitterrific 5 for Mac and iOS received a major update today, introducing features that bring it on par with the official Twitter apps and competing third-party Twitter apps.

Starting today, Twitterrific users can attach 140-second or shorter videos to tweets on both iOS and Mac. On iOS, a video can be inserted by tapping the camera when composing, and on Mac, you a video can be added by clicking on the camera button.

The app is also gaining official support for Twitter muting, so users and accounts that have been muted will sync between Twitter and Twitterrific with muted content removed from the timeline. Muted users do not generate push notifications, and all previously muted screen names will be auto upgraded to official Twitter mutes.

Muffling has been improved in Twitterrific with the following new features:
- Defining any muffle rule to apply only for a single user
- Muffling mentions from a specific person or mentions of a specific person
- Muffle tweets that quote someone specific
- Avoid seeing retweets from a specific person about someone else
- For full details, check out the knowledge base: https://twitterrific.com/help/muffles
Twitterrific for iOS includes several improvements such as better responsiveness when attaching media to a tweet, new rule suggestions for the Muffle submenu of the Actions menu, a easier-to-access Translate option in the Actions menu, a shortcut for muting the author of a tweet, and a media picker that sorts the most recent photos and videos at the bottom.

On Mac, the reading position marker is now updated when closing a timeline, user search results and listings indicate if a user has been muted or blocked, and there's a new shortcut for muting the author of a tweet.

Twitterrific for the Mac can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $7.99. [Direct Link]

Twitterrific for iOS can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

I still don't see an easy way to mute or muffle people or #'s unless I am missing it. Will stick with Tweetbot although I think twitterific looks better.

This entire post gives no indication to a non-twitter-ific user about why they may want to use this specific 3rd party app instead of the official twitter app. The point of this post is to say a 3rd party app used to be behind the standard OEM app and now isn’t??

That’s a good upgraded ad-on for users. Took a while to get here but thankful none the less. Best, USVet
Huh?

Huh? Mute of muffle people? What is muffling?

Mute or muffle. And yeah I don't know what the difference between the 2 are in twitterific. I just know I can't seem to do either easily for crap I don't want to see in my feed.

I just block people.

I used to use Tweetbot exclusively. I've bought every version for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. But at some point like 2 years ago, due to Twitter not giving access to new features and APIs to 3rd parties, I switched to the official client everywhere.

Maybe I'll give Twitterific another whirl (I haven't used it since my iPhone 4, at the absolute latest).

Bonus points:

Anyone remember when Hootsuite let you access more than 3 accounts for free, before it was baked into every other client?

My use case is a little different. I don’t use twitter to really follow people but for news and information. But if I don’t want to see dozens or more tweets about a topic, like the super bowl, emmys, World Series, but I still want to follow that news source for other things I can mute that hashtag in tweetbot for a hour, day, week or forever. Not sure if that is a mute or a muffle in Twitterific.

That actually makes a ton of sense. I do follow a lot of individuals but as you said, I also use it for news and information.

I've been Twitter more and more. i wonder if this or Tweetbot would be better than the stock app?
I think either is better. The official app likes to show you things it thinks are important, including ads. Neither tweetbot or twitterific do either of those. They just show you your time line in the order tweets were sent.

Thanks! I’ll check out Twitterific for now and see how it goes.
