5 More of the Best Free Linux Twitter Clients

5 More of the Best Free Linux Twitter Clients

Twitter has seen an extraordinary increase in the number of tweets, brief posts of 140 characters. That's right, an absurd constraint, with no pictures, video, or audio. Nevertheless, these short messages seems to bring out the best in humour, understanding, and observation, with tweets often sticking to the facts. 25 billion tweets were made in the past year alone using this text message service by over 100 million people around the world!

Most of these posts are made by ordinary folk. The majority of tweets may be seen as noise, mere random thoughts that have little real significance. However, there are many smart and professional people who are using Twitter intelligently. Many celebrities have also taken up the mantle. Our particular favorite celeb-tweeters include Jonathan Ross (television and radio presenter), Stephen Fry (actor, writer, television presenter, journalist, comedian, and film director), Lance Armstrong (road racing cyclist), and Rick Sanchez (a former TV news anchor).

Tweet talking is also important in terms of marketing and communication, business networking, offering breaking news and getting scoops. It can also help to alleviate the information overload from email, social bookmarking, RSS readers, and instant messages.

The feature 7 of the Best Free Twitter clients, written in July 2009, highlighted our personal favourites in this type of application. However, we have witnessed a number of other twitter clients that have improved significantly in the meantime. The purpose of this article is therefore to identify those applications which were not included in our original article, but which are definitely worth investigating.

To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, we have compiled a list of 5 more excellent Twitter clients, all of which make micro-blogging effortless. Hopefully, there will be something of interest here for anyone who wants to tweet.

So, let's explore the 5 Twitter clients at hand. For each application we have compiled its own portal page, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, screenshots, together with links to relevant resources and reviews. Start tweeting today!
