Pino twitter client

Tired of all those Adobe AIR twitter apps? Well its high time we Linux users had our very own twitter client. Gwibber has been floated as the next big thing, but frankly I'm not convinced. I hope the Gwibber developers come up with something stable and usable by the next month when Ubuntu 10.04 releases.

In the meantime, I suggest you guys take a look at Pino. Its an ultra-lightweight Twitter client which does a fantastic job at what its meant to do. Of course, it has integration, and if you need to use any other service you can add that as well.

Personally, I'm very impressed with Pino. I havent faced any difficulty in using any of its functions. Although Pino as of now, doesnt have the follow/unfollow features, I'm sure in time these will be integrated. But the bottomline is, if you need a proper, usable, GNOME friendly twitter client, Pino is your best bet.

How To Install:

To install it via the repositories in order to have the very latest version, type the following lines in the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vala-team/ppa

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:troorl/pino

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install pino
