Twitter's other clients now have some of the features you take for granted using its main apps. Its mobile web version, Twitter Lite and Twitter for Windows now support night mode, real-time updates on replies, likes and retweets as well as a newer Tweet compose window. They're not the largest changes, but they'll make a big difference if you can't (or don't want to) use the "full" native apps on mobile devices.

And they may be important in the long run. Twitter has been phasing out apps like its standard Mac client, and its plan to transition to new developer tools could hinder the functionality of some third-party apps and steer users elsewhere. If you're not fond of Twitter's regular apps, the web version may be your best bet until you find a suitable alternative -- you might as well get modern bells and whistles while you're at it.
