A quick fix to the Twitter for Mac and Spaces problem

About 2 weeks ago I created a post about Spaces for Mac and how simple it was to setup and use. Since then I've enjoyed using Spaces and my desktop looks less cluttered and much easier to navigate through. The only problem I kept having is that the Twitter application kept following me around from space to space, which kind of defeats the purpose. This was of course due to a bug within the Twitter for mac application. With a little online searching and reading I found a simple method to work around this annoying problem, so i thought I'd share it. 

Go to System Preferences > then choose Expose' & Spaces.

In the Spaces menu > go to the Application Assignments, click the + and add Twitter and choose 'Every Space' (essentially this is what we do not want to do, but it's a necessary step nonetheless.)

Then choose the space that you would like Twitter to be in. (in my case, Space 1)

And that's it! Twitter should now only be in 1 allocated space. This preference however will be forgotten if the Twitter application is closed. It's obvious that this a bug in the application, so hopefully the developers will have it fixed on the next update. But in the meantime these simple steps will have to be followed. Please leave any comments if this did not work for you. Enjoy!
