Choqok recognized as the best Twitter client for Linux

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 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, 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.
Then he makes some comparisons of hothot, Gwibber y DestroyTwitter, which I will not translate mainly to avoid conflicts haha, the idea is not to make a Choqok VS _______ 😉
We already talked about ChoqokWhen version 1.2 came out I wrote an article, with photos and all the news that it brought us, you can read it here: Choqok 1.2 released [Photos + Details + Download]
This is obviously not the absolute truth, everyone will have their opinion about it but ... how many of those who may have a different opinion have really used Choqok? 😉

    I have nothing negative to say. Choqok, like KDE, are excellent .. I hope the new version of Turpial manages to catch up.

      We have to frame this comment from old elva

        You don't have to frame anything. Just because I prefer Xfce doesn't mean I don't recognize that KDE is the best GNU / Linux Desktop and I've always said that.

          Perhaps saying the best hurts some, I think it would be more accurate to say that it is the most complete. Well, "better" has a lot to do with the taste of each one 😉

            There are things that are better than others

            In general, without sticking to Linux

    Choqok is fabulous, and hands down the best microblogging app out there today.

    I had to leave Twitter for a long time and in my opinion I was happy with Hotot about Choqok, which is not bad either. For my part, I invite you to test all the clients and decide for your own opinion, greetings.

      Hotot is good, it almost fulfills the same characteristics of choqok shown above, but it does not support the lists, it does not have so many shorteners, although for each account it runs in an instance, I don't know how my multi-account is in choqok, but I love Hotot 😉
