Tapbots has released Tweetbot 2.5 with some welcome additions to the Mac edition of the Twitter client. The update incorporates a change announced by Twitter earlier this year (see this blog post) that no longer applies the characters in a username to the 140-character limit when replying to a tweet (placing the username above the Tweet rather than within the Tweet text). Tweetbot still enables you to compose a “classic” reply that keeps the username in the text of your tweet (and thus counts it toward the character limit) by holding the Control key when clicking the Reply button. The release also adds support for sending images in direct messages, fixes a bug with full-screen mode, and avoids a crash when viewing a large number of collections. ($9.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 11.7 MB, 10.10+)
