Its a good small basic twitter app for linux! RT and Fav. Features are still missing. Another bogus thing is, why newer versions need GTK+ >= 2.14 - so it won't build on debian stable - but this dependency is not true... it should also build with GTK+ >= 2.12 (after modifying the config.in file) ... dev's should really check, which are there true deps.
