Pristine Twitter app

This app is based the awesome Mobile Twitter site, but modifies a lot of things and makes it more usable on the desktop.

No new features will be accepted as I don't have time to keep up on the constant Mobile Twitter changes.


Dark mode

You can toggle dark mode in the Anatine menu or with Cmd Shift D / Ctrl Shift D.

Background behavior

When closing the window, the app will continue running in the background, in the dock on macOS and the tray on Linux/Windows. Right-click the dock/tray icon and choose Quit to completely quit the app. On macOS, click the dock icon to show the window. On Linux, right-click the tray icon and choose Toggle to toggle the window. On Windows, click the tray icon to toggle the window.
