Today Twitter updated its official Mac app (yes, it still has one) with a number of new features, including a tweet detail pane, profile header images, and image previews in the timeline.

Here’s the full list of changes:

More visual and engaging timelines
• Previews of Twitter photos will be front and center in Tweets. To see more of the photo, just click. If you want to disable previews, just go to preferences and uncheck “image previews.”

Get more from Tweets
• Check out the tweet detail pane to see the conversation around a tweet as well as favorite and retweet counts.

Beautiful profiles
• Profiles now show header photos to display the unique personality of every user. Learn more about them by seeing who they follow and are followed by, their lists, and their custom timelines.

Updated design
• We’ve refreshed the overall look and feel of the app.
