Last week we reported that Tweetie for Mac was in fact dead. It seemed to have come straight from the horses mouth, that of course being, Ev Williams (co-founder of Twitter). Not so fast says Loren Brichter, developer of Tweetie and founder of Atebits software which was acquired by Twitter back in April.
Now, since the MacHeist nanoBundle announced that it would provide all purchasers with access to the Tweetie 2 for Mac beta, MacHeist Director, John Casasanta has been in contact with Loren and he tells us in a forum post that Loren is in fact still working on Tweetie 2 for Mac.
So there you have it. Tweetie 2 for Mac is alive and well and is a work in progress. Loren also makes note that because of the acquisition and his new responsibilities, it’s taking longer than he originally anticipated, but that he has added a second developer to assist him.
When can you expect Tweetie 2 for Mac? I haven’t the slightest clue at this point, but when it’s available – we’ll let you know.
