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).
$ 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
