I know that the Gwibber client supports Facebook and Twitter, but is it possible to use it with Google+?

Google+ does not have an API for doing the things you can do with Twitter and Facebook, from something like Gwibber. Thus, there is no plug-in for Gwibber to use Google+. There is no way to authenticate with Google+ and get your circles information, and filter streams or such, via the current API.

Is there any plan to release one soon? – nick Jan 16 '13 at 19:28
@nick A plug-in being released depends on Google+ making the APIs for doing such activities available to the public. – dobey Jan 16 '13 at 21:38
