On February 3, an image was revealed that seemed to show a brand new version of Tweetbot for Mac, and led many to believe that a new app, or a major upgrade, was on the way.Turns out that was indeed the case, as the official reveal of “Tweetbot 2 for Yosemite” has finally arrived. In the tweet, which was sent out from the official Tweetbot account, the developer says that Tweetbot for Yosemite has been “more work than anticipated,” which would be a good reason as to why any kind of update for the popular Tweetbot for Mac has been slow to arrive.
Along with the tweet, an image was included which shows a much clearer image of Tweetbot 2 than what was shown on February 3. Indeed, the new app, which will be an upgrade from the original Tweetbot for Mac, does indeed bear many of the stylistic approaches of Yosemite, with round avatars, plenty of translucency and more. It’s much flatter in appearance, too.
Tweetbot for Yosemite has been more work than anticipated, but it is comingâ€¦and yes, it will be a free update! http://t.co/HOQI4fSdsO

The most important part of the release, though, is the fact that it will indeed be a free update when it launches later this year. As far as a release date goes, though, that’s still unknown as of the time of this writing.
Do you use Tweetbot for Mac?
