Twitter app for Mac gets Notification Center integration
Twitter has been busy lately. Just hours after announcing the nifty log-in verification system on all accounts, it seems that Twitter for Mac is seeing some major updates as well. As noted by 9to5Mac, the app for Mac now has Notification Center integration, which means that users can now receive notifications when someone mentions them or when they receive a Direct Message.
To enable the feature, simply adjust the settings in the "Preferences" section. It's worth noting that OS X already had the integration, except that the notifications were deferred to the web rather than its native client. Twitter app for Mac version 2.2.1 can be downloaded at the Mac App Store. Of course, an update wouldn't be complete without the occasional bug fixes. Fixes include the following:
- Fix for Growl notifications not working in Lion and Mountain Lion
- Fix for bug that prevented un-favoriting tweets
- Fix for missing account switcher in composer
- Fix for error message when posting a tweet with a pasted image
- Fix for enlarged avatar when dragging a tweet into an email

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
