Using it since I did the upgrade to Ubuntu 9.10 which came along with Gwibber.

Works well, you can even use multiple Twitter accounts and also connect to other social networks such as Facebook and Digg.

However, as I mentioned Digg now I also got to admit that this one wont work for me.
It's possible to connect to the service but nothing more.

Otherwise, the client is very stable although sometimes new tweets didn't get displayed for some unknown reason.

4 stars.

Works great on Ubuntu but the integration is a bit lacking. It looks okay but I find it hard to use as a mini-notifier. The interface has a few rough edges and doesn't show where you're posting to. That's caused me to post to the wrong account a few times but you can right-click on the message area to select where you're posting to.

Maybe with a short tutorial or manual Gwibber could be a 5-star app.

I like the integration with the GNOME desktop and it's ease of use. A little rough starting out with Ubuntu 10.4 beta, but got a lot better with Ubuntu 10.4 RC.

Gwibber is probably only client that supports lots of protocols - specially identi.ca and Facebook.

I may be biased - since, I maintain it for Debian ;)

It's functional but not up to snuff compared to TweetDeck or Twidroid Pro which I also use.
