Why doesn’t Tweetbot have all the features that the official Twitter client has?
Tweetbot’s features are limited by what the public Twitter API has to offer. The API is how Tweetbot communicates with Twitter. Their API defines what we can and can’t do.
We do our best to add features that make Tweetbot better, but not everything is available to us. The good news is Twitter is constantly improving the public API so we will be able to make use of the features we think make Tweetbot a better product. It’s also worth noting that there are no Ads or Promoted Tweets on Tweetbot.
