10 Twitter Clients For Linux

Filed under
Software

If you think Twitter is a no-good, time-waster, fad that will die off just in time before the new social media fad comes in; you should be glad to know that that is exactly how I felt before I started using Twitter. Your experience with twitter will be as good as the people you follow or the users you socialize with. If you follow someone who spams you with marketing stuff and updates every morning what he had for breakfast, then you definitely will be disappointed.

This post is not about persuading you to use twitter (maybe a little bit), but if you already do use twitter and only use it via web you should be glad to know that there are a number of desktop clients available for us Linux users which makes using twitter a lot easier.

(Some of these clients are OS independent)

1) twhirl: Thanks to Adobe Air deploying applications over multiple platform is easier than ever. twhirl is one of the most widely used twitter desktop clients out there. It supports multiple accounts over multiple social networks with a decent user interface.

Android Headliner: Chinese Handsets Need Better Software

That being said, Chinese OEMs have been known for pretty poor quality products for quite some time. Many of them still are, but a number of China-based OEMs improved in that regard, a lot. Manufacturers like Xiaomi, Huawei and Meizu have great hardware, and they’ve also improved a lot on the software front, but some other, smaller companies have real issues on the software side of things. Don’t get me wrong though, not all of them have such issues, but a number of them just can’t get that part right. Many of us in the tech business actually appreciate stock Android and what it brings to the table, and luckily, many of these smaller companies don’t skin Android all that much. Why is that a good thing? Well, the performance tends to be good for the most part, and the UI also looks really great. So, what’s wrong then? Well… read on. Read more
