  • Apple's WWDC 2019 developer conference was held in San Jose last week

Micro-blogging site Twitter has announced that it will be bringing back “Twitter to Mac” with help from Apple’s Project Catalyst, Pro, which is Apple’s initiative to help developers port their iOS apps into Mac. Twitter made the announcement during Apple’s WWDC conference last week, saying that the app would launch with Catalina and this new version would have a variety of features like dark mode, keyboard shortcuts, multiple windows, and notifications, The Verge reported late on Saturday.

In a post about the return of Twitter for Mac users, the company said: “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.”

The company previously had a “Twitter for Mac app” that was discontinued in February 2018 because it was not sustainable to maintain two separate codebases.

According to the report, the company said that with Project Catalyst, they would be able to use their existing iOS codebase along with new features for desktops.
