My favourite Twitter app for Ubuntu has been updated to support Ubuntu 12.10. Polly is a multi-account supporting and multi-column toting desktop app for Twitter. It sports a healthy set of features whilst also having a relatively light footprint on system resources. Although a stable release of Polly has yet to be made, although the 'development' build is, in my opinion, robust enough for daily use.
When it comes to Twitter applications for Linux it's fair to say that we are spoilt for choice. There's Ubuntu's default app Gwibber; the webkit loving Hotot; Choqok or Qwit if KDE is your sort of thing; the unstable but awesome Polly... The list goes on. So does gFeedline, a relatively new Twitter app for Linux, bring anything new to the table?
A new toolbar providing quick access to main features is one of the changes in the latest release of Qt Twitter app Choqok.

Chirp, chirp: The very capable KDE twitter application Choqok is available for download. Sporting a redesigned interface and a nest full of minor fixes, it's worth upgrading.

So you're using Adobe Air twitter application 'Tweetdeck' - on your Ubuntu desktop. Only it doesn't look quite as native as it could do. The solution? @corbindavenport shared it with his followers on Twitter...
Last week the developer of Schizobird' sought the help of OMG! Ubuntu! readers in choosing a new name for his Twitter app. The post in question received over 247 comments pretty much overnight. Nestled amongst all of the sane, and not so sane, suggestions was one clear winner...
Promising new Twitter client 'Schizobird' is seeking a new name - and you can help.
A new Twitter client by the name of 'Schizobird' has been under development by Ubuntu user and avid community-goer Conscious User, with the focus on rock solid multiple account support. The name Schizobird wasn't picked at random; instead it's an allusion to the mental illness schizophrenia, which is associated with multiple personality disorder. Schizobird is designed to handle multiple accounts gracefully.
An update to Qt Twitter client 'Choqok' is now available for download. Now on version 1.1, the release contains a new translator plugin; a timeline filter to make reading tweets in your stream from a specific person or topic easier and a new option to hide the menu bar.
