Twitterrific on iOS & macOS adds support for attaching video, new muting & muffling features

In the realm of Twitter clients for Mac, users are turning to third-party clients in light of Twitter for Mac’s shuttering. Today, Twitterrific for both macOS and iOS has been updated with some handy new features.

Twitterrific has a shared feature list on both platforms, adding support for muting, muffling and attaching videos to tweets.

In terms of muting and muffling, Twitterrific is now moving the feature over to Twitter’s system. This is great as not only will muting and muffling get synced between both the iOS and macOS clients, but it will also work on Twitter on the web and Twitter’s various first-party clients. Muffling or muting is designed to prevent notifications from the muted user.

Muffling goes above and beyond, however, as it can now be applied to a specific user, tweet or retweets by a specific person. This applies to quoted tweets as well.

Users can also now tweet videos with Twitterrific. Before, users were limited to just photos with the app. Videos will need to be less than 140 seconds, and can be recorded or picked from a user’s photo library.

Twitterrific for Mac recently got a major update, after being abandoned for several years. The app has been slowly catching up with its iOS counterpart.

Twitterific 5 for iOS is available for free on the App Store, with an optional in-app purchase to unlock additional features. The Mac client will run you $7.99 and is available on the Mac App Store.

Aside from muting, muffling, and video attachments, there are a ton of bug fixes to both applications. Feel free to read the changelog below:
