Today we are releasing a new version of Echofon for Mac which includes support for Twitter's new User Streams API. We released a preview of this feature for registered users a while back and today we are excited to release it for all users.
In case you've forgotten, the User Streams API allows Echofon to show Tweets instantly when they are received, no need to refresh your timeline. It's amazingly fast! In addition, events show up in the timeline, these events include things like follows and favorites.
If you are an Echofon for Mac user you can update by choosing "Check for Update" from the "Echofon" menu. If you aren't using Echofon on your Mac yet, go to our download page.
