Are you tired of copying and pasting text from your Mac into Twitter? With some neat Twitter integration and the Official Twitter App for Mac (available Free in the Mac App Store), you can tweet anything you want, natively from Mac OS X.
It’s not a secret that Apple wanted to bring some of iOS’s charm to the Mac onto Mac OS X Lion. Those of you who kept up with WWDC 2011 know that Apple is planning major Twitter integration on iOS 5 and Twitter’s provided similar integration in OS X through it’s Mac App. Simply install the app from the App Store and sign in and you’ll immediately be able to use all of it’s features.
From there, all you have to do is select the text you want to tweet, right-click, and click ‘Tweet’.
This will launch the Twitter app, with your text in a field.
This will also launch the actual Twitter app, pictured below:
The app itself behaves like any Twitter client on the Mac, where it sits in the menu bar and lets you access your Twitter feed. However I must say that Twitter has done a good job with this one. It lets you access the timeline, tweets you were mentioned in, messages sent to you, your lists, your profile, and the search bar. Anything you would normally do on the native Twitter website you can do inside of the app, easily.
