As per a report by The Verge, Twitter said that it had made an announcement during Apple’s WWDC conference last week that this new Twitter app for macOS would be coming out this fall. It is said to support features like dark mode, keyboard shortcuts, multiple windows, and notifications.

The app was first disbanded by Twitter last year after giving out very sporadic updates and ultimately telling users to use the web version instead of the app.

Commenting on the re-launch of the Twitter app on macOS, the company said in a post "We are excited that Project Catalyst will enable us to bring Twitter back to the Mac by leveraging our existing iOS codebase. We'll also be able to add native Mac features on top of our existing iPad experience while keeping our maintenance efficient as we continue to improve this shared codebase in the years to come."
