Twitter for Mac lacking HIDPI/Retina support

@tbruun Thomas Bruun

After recently receiving the new Macbook Pro with HiDPI resolution support at work, we noticed that the Twitter app is far from compatible with the new "Retina" resolution. The cell views, especially, are extremely blurry. Is this something being worked on? Is there some temporary workaround that can be used?

I don't think Twitter cares about their apps. Wouldn't look forward to this coming.

As Mac OSX Mountain Lion is going to integrate Twitter, I think Twitter is going to wait for its release before releasing a new app or just stop distributing it as it might not be needed anymore.

I'm not sure about this but this is my guess.

Really lame that this app still isn't updated. If you are going to abandon it, then get it over with.

Any updates on when retina support will be released? It looks awful!

This is ridiculous, given twitter is integrated with OS X now.

und gute alternativen werden durch die neuen APIs unterdrückt und reduziert -_- #tweetbot

Not only do the recent API changes break the Tweetbot beta for me, but the official app STILL isnt updated. This is ridiculous.

Give us the source code to the app, we'll update it in a few minutes.
Why is this such a difficult task to get done?

Is Twitter pushing us to the web as they don't want to have a native App?

I want to know how it is helpful for me if I create a Twitter App for my jewelry business. Some one guide me.

When in the hell do you guys plan on releasing RETINA support for the new Macbook Pros? You guys are integrated with OSX..... this is terrible.

This is a huge disappointment. It was a decent app before you guys bought it, we are not exactly asking for innovation here, keep up with the rest of the world at least!!

I patched the original client to support retina (at least for texts) to fix blurry text killing my eyes.

No longer works with 10.8. I tried disabling Gatekeeper, but still get the "Twitter is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to Trash".

Hey, dear twitter community management/support team, are we pissing in the wind here?
Could you please at least honnestly tell us that you don't care? that it'll never be fixed. Retina, YOU SHALL NOT PASS.

This problem and your apathy regarding it really start to irritate everyone...

Simply enable the "Open In Low Resolution" checkbox - - and it looks a lot better.
