Tweet from anywhere in Mac OS X with Twitter for Mac
The Twitter for Mac client has a great feature that lets you send tweets from just about anywhere in Mac OS X, including the Finder. I’ve tested this out in the Mac OS X Finder, iTunes, Chrome, Safari, iChat, TextEdit, Terminal, and can confirm that this works all over the place.
To access the ‘Tweet’ from anywhere function:
- Highlight some text in Mac OS X
- Right-click on the highlighted text
- Select “Tweet” from the pop-up menu
This will automatically send the highlighted text to the Twitter app in Mac OS X.
I saw the headline on MacStories and low and behold, it works as advertised.
Twitter for Mac is a free download on the App Store (direct link), it’s arguably the best Twitter client for Mac and well worth installing.
