Undocumented trackpad gestures for Twitter for Mac Apps
The new Twitter for Mac application (available from the Mac App atore) has some built in trackpad support (using either a notebook trackpad or the Magic Trackpad). I couldn't find these shortcuts documented anywhere:

3-finger swipe up/down -- This has the same effect as pressing Command+[ or Command+]. That is; it lets you navigate through tweets, mentions, direct messages etc.

3-finger swipe left/right -- This has the same effect as pressing the left or right arrow key. Swiping to the right is context-dependent. It might open a browser page to view link contained in a tweet, or display information about a user or hashtag mentioned in the tweet. Swiping left takes you 'back' to where you were before you swiped right.

[crarko adds: I tested this, and it works as described. One thing about the Mac App store that is a pet peeve for me is that Macintosh programs should be called 'applications' and 'app' should be used for iOS programs. Call me old-fashioned.]

Undocumented trackpad gestures for Twitter for Mac

"App" has been short for "application" long before the iPhone existed. It's the extension for all applications on the Mac platform (.app) and several other platforms, and the phrase "killer app" and is especially well-known.
