It feels apt that Cawbird, an app I use regularly, is the subject of the first post published on this site this year!
See, Cawbird is one of the best Ubuntu apps. Regardless of whether you use Twitter or not — and if you don’t, you lucky thing — the client is a solid example of a well designed, well-featured, and well-integrated native desktop Linux app.
Cowbird 1.3 is the latest release. It’s not a huge update but its devs say “…there are several key improvements to managing […] interactions that should have been implemented/fixed sooner.”
Such as? Well, a batch of direct messaging tweaks feature in this update.
Now I can’t say I use Twitter DMs on Twitter that often — I break out in a cold sweat anytime I get DM on anything — but I welcome improvements in this area all the same.
