Gwibber is a microblogging client for the GNOME desktop.

It supports Twitter, Jaiku,, Facebook, Flickr, Digg, and RSS, with support for more services being added all the time.

Gwibber allows you to post updates, read updates, reblog, retweet, send personal messages and view public timelines all from your desktop! No need to open your browser!

Gwibber also uses Jaunty’s notification system to display new messages, so you don’t even need to have the  main window open to keep up-to-date!



You can install Gwibber directly from Add/Remove in Ubuntu 9.04. Just search for ‘gwibber’. Or by using “sudo apt-get install gwiber” from a terminal.

For Intrepid or Hardy users, you will need to add the Gwibber PPA to your software sources. (Instructions.)
