When Twitter was successful, there were many projects that focused on creating an application for all desktops or all operating systems that displayed the latest tweets or complementary functions for Twitter.
With the Twitter API restriction, the number was reduced considerably, to the point that the Ubuntu user has two options in addition to the web applications. We already know these options, one is Corebird and another is Choqok, both very functional but for those who use Kubuntu, quite ugly options.
In this case, the OMGUbuntu website has published an interesting plasmoid that makes us have one more alternative for our Twitter account without spoiling the appearance of our Kubuntu. This plasmoid is called Twitter Plasmoid and despite being a basic client, it is a very functional client due to its integration with our desktop.
Twitter apps for Ubuntu are less and less, but Twitter Plasmoid is a simple and fast solution
The plasmoid is still a widget that shows us a functionality on the desktop, something similar to the widgets that we have on our mobile or the mini-applications that are loaded on other desktops or operating systems. With Twitter Plasmoid we will not find the same functions as with TweetDeck but we will It will help us to send tweets, read the latest tweets from our profile or directly retweet.
Twitter Plasmoid can be found at this link. Once downloaded, we just have to add it as a plasmoid thanks to the Kubuntu plasmoid manager. Once added, we select it and drag it to the desktop. Once we load it, Twitter Plasmoid will ask us for a PIN to communicate with our account. It is something easy to achieve and even the configuration itself offers you the links to get this data. Once we have configured the account, we will have the plasmoid working on our desktop.
