The Mac just got one of its biggest software updates ever last week with the release of macOS Big Sur.
A major aspect of Big Sur is its redesigned dock and app icons that match with what you might see on the iPhone and iPad. The dock also looks like the one on the iPad too.
With the new macOS operating system update, Twitter has adjusted the look of its Mac app, specifically its app icon. Previously it was a circle icon, but now it looks exactly like its iPhone and iPad apps.

In terms of functionality and looks once it is opened, everything is still the same.
Twitter re-released its Mac app last year with a design that is very much like its website. It previously had an app that felt more like a Mac app and not as much like its website, but got rid of it in 2018.
In 2019, Twitter brought back its Mac app thanks to Apple’s macOS Catalyst app project, where select apps from the iPad can be used on the Mac.
Twitter for Mac is a free app in the Mac App Store. The company also has its free TweetDeck app as an alternative to the Twitter for Mac app.
