    My last post to Twitter was 2 months ago today. Somehow fitting that Twitterrific 5 will be released tonight, and I'll buy it not for posting but to explore the UI.

      @manton It's out in Australia already. It's beautiful. :)

        @manton It's really, really good.

          @mattro Excellent, can't wait to try it. I saw the screenshots -- looks great.

            @jsnell Great to hear. I think I'm going to enjoy being surprised by it (wasn't on the beta, didn't see any details until today, etc).

              @manton they're still calling it "tweet marker" in-app, however. Is the rename only for ADN?

                @manton It's a joy to read. Pretty radical redesign, but at this point you've got to differentiate somehow. They went all-in on reading and design and I was taken aback at first, but it really works.

                  @jsnell @manton We interviewed Ged and David last night for Iterate and Rene is the only one of the three of us to have seen it thus far. I'm really looking forward to playing with it after our conversation. Lots of new thinking. @reneritchie @marc

                    @mattro Yes, it's a little confusing but: Tweet Marker = sync for Twitter by me; Watermark = separate web app by me; Stream Marker = sync run by ADN.

                      @manton got it. Smashing stuff.

                        @sethclifford @reneritchie Cool, I'll make sure to check out the podcast when it's out.

                          @sethclifford @jsnell @manton @marc It's true! We even charmed the story of the "Snell bar" out of them! (no spoilers!)

                            @manton I’d love to be in the position of breaking even on developing costs just by having other developers buy my stuff to examine the UI.. One can dream 😀

                              @jsnell “They went all in on reading…” When has orange text ever been good for reading? I think the light theme is a must to even start talking about reading. You should put out an issue of Macworld with black pages and orange text...to improve “reading”.

                                @jsnell @manton I find myself not buying Twitteriffic because of how Twitter is pulling away from apps. Not fair to the Devs though.

                                  @reneritchie @sethclifford @manton @marc I was wondering when the Snellbar would be revealed

                                    @jsnell @reneritchie @manton @marc It will forever live as such in our collective Twitterrific lexicon...

                                      @jsnell I’ve heard the black background looks pretty sweet on the black iPhone 5, so I’m tempted. Can you adjust the text color and still keep the black background?

                                        @mgetzski It does look sweet. Color themes are not adjustable, though. (I wish… I adjusted the desktop app’s themes by hacking the plist file!)
