A tweet from MG Siegler says no more updates for the soon-to-be orphaned Twitter for Mac.
When Twitter acquired Tweetie over two years ago, Twitter for Mac was part of the deal. The program hasn't been updated in over a year, so this news won't shock the users of Twitter for Mac, but it may make them sad, as it did MG Siegler in his tweet announcement.
9to5Mac says Twitter for Mac hasn't been updated to support the Retina display on MacBook Pro, and lacks integration into the Mountain Lion notification system. Whether Twitter for Mac users adopt to Twitter through their browser, or go to third-party Twitter apps, remains to be seen.

Do you use Twitter for Mac? Do you use Twitter from your desktop at all?
