Does the official OSX client for Twitter (the one available in the App Store) use https? I'm unable to find any info about this on the Twitter site and my searches aren't turning up much either.

wireshark says yes, the Twitter OSX client is using https. TLSv1 Server Hello, Certificate, Server Hello Done

I did not check if it has anything to do with the https account settings, so it might use http if you didn't opt-in for https.
