Several Mac users have reported that their Twitter for Mac app is continuously crashing. According to the complaints on social media, the app crashes immediately at launch, even before the window appears.
Re-installing the Twitter for Mac app does not resolve its crashing issue
Users on different macOS versions have reported the same issue with the Twitter for Mac app which means it is not tied to macOS updates and is a widespread issue. 9to5Mac wrote:
In fact, the app even silently crashed in the background for macOS users who had it open before the widespread crashes started occurring. This issue doesn’t seem to be tied to an Apple software update, as it’s impacting users across multiple macOS versions, including the latest macOS Ventura beta.
Although for some users deleting the app and reinstalling it fixed the issue like Mark Gurman from Bloomberg, it is not a permanent fix. 9to5Mac found that the app crashed for some users even after re-installing it.
The publisher suggests that the issue might be caused by a rouge piece of text attempting to load at launch and its likely solution is a server-side update.
Twitter is going to several changes; the company launched a new “unmentioning” feature for all users to remove themselves from conversations they do not wish to be a part of and is testing status updates feature for users to tag posts with statuses from the app’s predefined list.
More interestingly, the company is also engaged in a lawsuit with billionaire Tesla CEO Elon Musk who bailed out on their $44 billion acquisition deal.
