Bauer-Puntu I made it based around social media. I would pre-install Twhirl when it was still around, then I switched over to Gwibber when it was still being updated.
Last year I got rid of all my personal social media accounts, but recently I decided to revive my personal Twitter account since I'm going through a divorce and feeling more social; and decided to install a Twitter client on my Ubuntu laptop again. Since my two favorite clients are no longer around I went hunting, and found one I like. It's called Birdie!
To install it in Ubuntu you first must be running at least Ubuntu 3.10. If you are at 3.10, run the following from the terminal to install:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:birdie-team/stableAfter you install, Birdie is pretty straight forward. The only drawback I see is that it won't minimize to the system tray. I'd like to see that feature implemented if possible. Despite that, it is a pretty cool little Twitter client!
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install birdie -y
What do you use on Ubuntu for a Twitter client? Why do you like it? Let us know in the comments.
