Last week the developer of Schizobird’ sought the help of OMG! Ubuntu! readersin choosing a new name for his Twitter app.

The post in questionreceivedover 247 comments pretty much overnight. Nestled amongst all of the sane, and not so sane, suggestions was one clear winner: ‘Polly’.

The developer, ‘conscioususer‘, sent us a short statement on the new name…

I really thank all OMG editors and commenters forhelping me to find a new name. The name “Polly”,which was the most liked suggestion in the commentthread by a large margin, wasn’t my favorite at first, but after a while it grew on me for itsremarkable simplicity, and I ended up loving it.

Special thanks to Gabriel G, who is now creditedin the source code. If you want me to put yourcomplete name, please send me an email with it.

Thanks to all who took part!
