If you ask me, I would say that in GNU / Linux the king of customers for Twitter e Identical es Choqok, for many reasons that now do not come to the story. The point is, there is another client that I love and about which we have already talked a lot in DesdeLinux: Hotot.
It turns out that in Debian Wheezy the version we find is the 0.9.7, which is written in Python, but if we want, we can install a much more recent version and even, written in Qt (hotot-qt) or in Gtk (hotot-gtk). For this we will use a PPA of Ubuntu.
In the case of users of Ubuntu they just have to open a terminal and put:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa: hotot-team $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install hotot
In the case of Debian, we open the file as root / Etc / apt / sources.list with our favorite text editor and we put:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/hotot-team/ppa/ubuntu precise main
$ sudo aptitude update $ sudo aptitude install hotot
Remember we have hotot-gtk y hotot-qt depending on our Desktop Environment.
