Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.


I just came across MahTweets (via lifehacker), a plug-in based Twitter client (Windows only) which also integrates with Facebook, RSS Feeds, Identi.ca and more, and offers all kinds of handy customizations . They are all offered as plugins, you can add them one by one from Options. There are also upload plugins which allows users to upload photos to Flickr, Twitgoo, TwitPic, and Yfrog.

After you're done with the initial setup, you'll see the client itself. It starts off with only one column, but you can add as many as you want, with all sorts of different kinds of filters in each to keep your groups organized (like TweetDeck). In addition to the basic features for updating your status, sending direct messages, and re-tweeting, you can also take webcam snapshots, upload pictures to Facebook or Flickr, and view links to pictures inline.

MahTweets is a standalone client that doesn’t require Adobe Air. It has been developed on Windows Presentation Foundation and .NET Framework 3.5. It also makes use of some features of the upcoming .NET Framework 4.0.
