Twitter remembers it has an OS X app, updates it for the first time in 10 months — The social network client had a half-dozen updates throughout the length of 2013, and zero treatment so far in 2014. Today’s update changes that, bringing it to version 3.1 and finally adding the same support for multiple photos that the mobile versions of Twitter have had for many months.
