Choqok is a microblogging client for KDE that supports Twitter and a couple of other microblogging services no one actually uses ( and GNU Social).

  • Installing it from a PPA is easy:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:adilson/experimental
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install choqok
  • Choqok is a very basic Twitter client. It supports multiple Twitter accounts, viewing your timeline, retweeting and tweeting.

  • By default only the latest 20 tweets are shown and new tweets are checked every 10 minutes. This can be increased in the settings.

  • It does autocompletion when typing Twitter handles, not just for folks you follow!

  • It does not show the number of retweets or likes of tweets.

  • Conversations can be viewed by clicking the rightmost up-arrow below the tweet (visible only if it is part of a conversation). The conversation opens in a new window.

Tried with: Choqok 1.5 and Ubuntu 16.04
