An Overview of Twitter Clients for Linux (Linux Journal)

Daniel Bartholomew reviews a number of Linux twitter clients on Linux Journal. "Micro-blogging sites are everywhere these days. There's Jaiku, FriendFeed, Pownce, Tumblr, and Identi.ca, to name a few. For many, though, the original micro-blogging site is the best: Twitter. It certainly has the biggest userbase, if nothing else. If you don't know what micro-blogging is and how it is different from regular blogging, check out one of the many online Twitter introductions. One thing that has helped Twitter become as popular as it has is the Twitter API. For users of Twitter, this ability for nearly any developer to create applications that work with the service means that in addition to posting via a browser or my cell phone, I can post from a score of different Desktop applications."

What about command-line Twitter tools? Greg K-H has a good one.

Nifty! Thanks for the pointer. And, I laughed at his comment in the README file.

I'm curious: is Greg's code here is the result of an itch he personally needed to scratch? ;-)

That is simply too good to be passed up. Getting this queued up for inclusion in Fedora: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=460615

Linux Journal crashed my Konqueror

I love how that LJ page reliably crashed my Konqueror until I upgraded to
KDE 3.5.10.
