I’ve been using Ping.FM to update my Twitter and Identi.ca accounts for the last 2 weeks. That is all good and great but I needed a way to read the replies and feeds from those 2 accounts as well! My “solution” was to keep 3 tabs open in my browser and periodically refresh those pages to see if there was anything new. In comes Gwibber. It wasn’t until last night that I found out we had it packaged in our repositories (the WebKit branch) so today I decided to give it a go.
Gwibber is an open source microblogging client for GNOME developed with Python and GTK. It supports Twitter, Jaiku, Identi.ca, Facebook, and Digg.
So far it is updating me with the chatter from everyone I follow, which is exactly what I wanted. I may post again about this tool in the coming days to follow up.
