Tweet from Contacts app in OS X

Now that Twitter is so deeply embedded into OS X from 10.8 onward, you’ll find convenient aspects of that integration throughout Mac apps. A surprisingly useful example is in the Contacts app bundled into OS X, where you can send tweets directly to users or check their timeline easily:

  • Right-click on a users Twitter name, then choose
    • “Tweet” to directly @message that person
    • “View Tweets” to see a timeline of their tweets in the default web browser

If you’re not finding a persons Twitter information, you can either add it manually or, better yet, just import the usernames directly from Twitter into Mac OS X by way of System Preferences.
