Hi everyone i need a twitter client that fully integrates with the unity shell and is capable of providing real time updates for my mentions, direct messages etc when minimised
From your specifications, I recommend you to use Gwibber, which is default in 11.04.
Integration in Unity:
Real time updating?
Not by seconds, the minimum is 5 minutes to refresh for tweets and mentions and replies, but seriously do you need it to be faster?It will bring headache:).
And tick show notifications for all messages.
Go to edit ---> preferences ---> set the minimum to 5 minutes.
Note: If you really need real time updating; you can use Tweetdeck for desktop, but you need first to install Adobe Air. But it lacks integration with Unity and Ubuntu in general.
