However, that change accompanies some compromises, including the removal of the user-selected option for URL shortening, video uploads, and picture uploads.
This app’s free version provides some fundamental functionality in permitting clients to see Twitter, however, if you want some more substantial features, you’ll require to pay for them. The free version will also include the permission to send or replay to tweets, along with message pop-ups, support for multiple accounts, and “advanced filtering.”

On Tapbots website, it does note that the Tweetbot 6’s new version is an “early access” version of this application, with multiple new features on their roadmap to be created and also a new API’s to receive as Twitter makes them available, therefore it’s possible that over time, the new app will get additional functionality that may facilitate the unpleasant pill of the pricer subscription change.
Additionally, for the Mac version of Tweetbot, the company presently can’t announce any update plans, which now uses the older Twitter API and still expenses $9.99 upfront to use. The monthly or yearly subscription with the Tweetbot’s updated macOS version could also add value to the new subscription.
