@techwraith yep! Twitter's new site performs at app like speeds, so using native UI from electron (vibrancy) I was able to make things look a prettier 🐦

@mehedih_ @jackhanford this just makes me happy. Open Source at it's finest. Product is released and someone adds a pull request hours later.

Excellent job. People may give you grief because of Electron, but it doesn't bother me and adds a lot of value.

Looks nice. But, does it really need to use Google Analytics as well?

@frassmith The only tracking is just for me to see how many people are potentially using this thing. It's all entirely anonymous, and only first once during the boot
