TTYtter: Use Twitter From The Command Line [Linux & Mac]

Check out your Twitter timeline, or leave a tweet yourself, from the comfort of the command line. Whether you’re a long-time console junkie or an aspiring one with a love for social media, TTYtter is a worthwhile diversion and possibly a Twitter client you’ll love to use. No one will ever accuse us of under-covering Twitter. What we haven’t done, so far as I can tell, is teach you to take advantage of Twitter entirely from your command line.

Polly: A Fast, Customizable Native Twitter Client [Linux]

Try a fast and feature-filled Twitter client for Linux. Polly is a native Linux app for Twitter that features multiple customizable columns, support for multiple accounts and desktop notifications. Sure, I’ve shown you Twitter clients for Linux before. Some are great, but not all of them survived the Oauthpocolypse. And don’t get me started about Gwibber, the social client built into Ubuntu.

Geary: A Quick And Simple Linux Email Client With Threaded Conversations

When it comes to Linux email clients, Thunderbird and Evolution come to mind quickly. Both of these programs are great if you need advanced features. Both clients can feel heavy at times, however. Exploring their settings can be confusing, and they tend to run slowly on older hardware. If you’d rather use something lighter, Geary might be what you’re looking for.
