Recently there have been a few additions to the list of twitter clients available in the Fedora repos. Here are a few of the awesome twitter clients to choose from in Fedora:

Corebird

Corebird is a fairly new GNOME twitter client that provides support for almost all twitter features, including lists, favourites, direct messages and of course tweeting. It also has support for the optional GNOME dark theme. However, like corebird features a lot of newer GNOME technologies, so it only works on Fedora 20 or newer.

You can find corebird in GNOME software, or install from the command line with:

sudo yum install corebird

corebird


Birdie

Birdie is another relative newcomer to the Linux twitter client foray, but it is still in active development and has an impressive feature list. However, like corebird, birdie features a lot of newer GNOME technologies, so it only works on Fedora 20 or newer.

You can find birdie in GNOME software, or install from the command line with:

sudo yum install birdie

Gwibber

Gwibber has been around for a long time in the Linux twitter client space. It does most of the basic things well, but lacks some of the more advanced features that are already standard in newer clients like birdie and corebird.

sudo yum install gwibber

Hotot

Hotot has also been around for a few years now, however, the author has just announced (Feb 2014) that he is no longer working on maintaining the application. That said Hotot also has a wide range of features, most notably, a multi-column display (Corebird and Birdie do not). Hotot is also not a native GNOME or KDE application, it basically implements most of its behaviour in a web browser widget, so the interface can be a bit strange at times.

Hotot is still available in the Fedora repos, you can install with gnome-software, or from the command line with:

sudo yum install hotot-gtk
