Corebird is a Twitter client for Linux. It has a UI that I find to be clean and modern.
$ sudo apt install corebird
Tried with: Corebird 1.1 and Ubuntu 16.04
Mikutter is a Twitter client for Linux. It is developed using Ruby.
$ sudo apt install mikutter
- When you start it for the first time, a bot-like mikutter-chan will lead you through the steps to link your Twitter account with the client. This is quite user-friendly.
It supports multiple Twitter accounts. Just click the 🔧 icon at bottom-right and go to Account information to add more accounts.
One feature I like in Mikutter is that it shows the original message below reply tweets.
I find the message list display to be quite crowded, though usable.
Tried with: Mikutter 3.3.6 and Ubuntu 16.04
Choqok is a microblogging client for KDE that supports Twitter and a couple of other microblogging services no one actually uses (identi.ca 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
