The development team behind the popular social networking and micro-blogging service Twitter has announced that it updated the Twitter for Mac client, the easy to use, speedy and good looking client that was rolled out to the Mac App Store at the start of the year. Twitter for Mac 2.1, the update in question, comes with several interesting new bits and pieces.

One interesting new feature in Twitter for Mac 2.1 is the option to open more than one Twitter for Mac windows at any time. Since you can open more than one window, you can see more than one timeline. To access this feature, just go to the Window menu and look down; you should see the Open in New Window option.

I mentioned above that Twitter for Mac is easy to use and speedy. Well, version 2.1 makes the client easier to use and faster than ever before. That’s because you can easily click back to previous pages by using the bar at the top, because there's a separate “New Tweet” button in the bottom left hand corner, because user profiles make it easier to learn about and interact with someone, and because the client now has username and hashtag auto-complete.

If you would like to get Twitter for Mac 2.1, you can grab it from the Mac App Store here.

That takes care of the “Twitter updates Mac client” part in the title; now let’s move on to the “improves mobile web app” part. Twitter announced that as part of its commitment to provide easy access to Twitter no matter where the user is or what device he uses, it is rolling out a new version of twitter.com for mobile devices - high-end touchscreen devices that is. Twitter wants to offer a high-quality and consistent Twitter experience to smartphone and tablet users who access twitter.com via the browser installed on their devices.

The web app is being rolled out gradually, first to a small percentage of iPhone, iPod Touch and Android smartphones, then to the rest of the world.
