I have always used Choqoksimply because it is Qt and I don't like mixing bookstores GTK In Myself KDE if I can help it. Happens that LifeHacker.com posted an article today talking about Choqok, specifically comparing it with other clients Twitter for Linux, stating that this is hands down the best of all 😀
I leave the translation here:
Despite the large number of Twitter clients that exist on Linux, none of them are perfect. Our favorite would be the powerful and customizable Choqok.
- View your feeds from Twitter e Idendi.ca, direct responses, direct messages, and much more from a fairly compact window.
- Supports multiple accounts.
- Allows you to search as well as follow other users.
- Displays user profile information.
- Retweet, reply, and favorite selection with a simple click.
- Supports Twitter lists
- Support to shorten URLs with more than 10 different services.
- You can upload images to Flickr, ImageShack, Twitpic, Twitgoo, Mobypicture y Posterous.
- Integrates with notifications from KDE.
- You can post text in other languages as Choqok you can use the Google Translator.
- Filter unwanted posts from your feeds.
- Preview images and videos.
- And much more…
Choqok has almost everything you could want in a Twitter client. It's compact, supports multiple accounts, and supports tons of different URL shorteners, etc. This combined with a plug-in system that contains advanced features like tweet filtering, image and video previews, Google Translate support, and even the ability to display long URLs when hovering over the shortened version. , just great. It has a ton of different preferences to adjust its behavior, so you can see and use Twitter however you want. There are very few things we wish you did.That said, if you have a complaint, it is that you wish you could disable the "counting new tweet" option. In other words, the number is displayed with the number of new tweets in each tab, a number that can only be removed by entering each tab and clicking the "mark all as read" button. It should be like other clients Twitter, that only by having entered each tab automatically marks all the new tweets of that tab as read. This is probably the smallest annoyance you could think of, though, so this is worth putting up with as Choqok is without a doubt a great application. Its only other disadvantage is that it is a KDE, which means that we will probably see it a bit out of place in a system based on GNOME, not to mention it doesn't support libnotify. However, even in a GNOME, it destroys all the clients out there with its feature set.
