Tapbots has just pushed an update to each of the three editions of its popular Twitter client, Tweetbot. Tweetbot for iPhone, Tweetbot for iPad, and Tweetbot for Mac have all just been updated to meet Twitter's new UI requirements. More importantly, they've all been updated to use Twitter's 1.1 API, which is set to take effect on March 5. Tapbots notes that you must upgrade to the new versions of Tweetbot on or before said date, at which time Twitter's new API is set to render previous versions inoperative. In addition to the aforementioned changes, a great deal of improvements are included in the latest update to Tweetbot for Mac. One of the more notable improvements is the new set of options for the app's menubar icon and dock badge. Another is the ability to enable or disable notifications for when a specific user tweets. Yet another is thumbnail preview support for Vine and Flickr, which, if you'll recall, was already added to Tweetbot for iPhone and iPad earlier this month.

In line with this, the new version of the app now allows you to drag an .mp4 video or an image into the app icon to create a new tweet with the dragged file already attached. Check out the list below for the rest of Tweetbot for Mac's new bunch of improvements:
Tweetbot for iPhone and Tweetbot for iPad are available in the iOS App Store for $2.99 each. Tweetbot for Mac is available in the Mac App Store for $19.99. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
