Until recently, my microblogging client of choice has been Gwibber. When it was first released, Gwibber was fast, stable and – most importantly – allowed me to follow multiple streams from the same window. But time moves on and Gwibber has become increasingly bloated and, frankly, a lot less stable than it should be.
So now I’m giving Pino a whirl. It’s not in the Ubuntu repositories yet, but it can be grabbed from the Vala team PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vala-team/ppa
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:troorl/pino
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pino
I’m impressed so far. Pino is fast and light and the only problems I’ve encountered so far can be put down to the fact that Twitter is being unbelievably unresponsive – again.
It would be nice, however, if I could follow both streams in the same window.
