Earlier I used purple-microblog, a pugin for pidgin as a twitter client for my desktop. But pidgin had some issues with SCIM so sometimes I couldn't use my native language. Despite that issue, purple-microblog is a cool plugin for pidgin. So I searched for some other twitter clients.
Founds some for linux. Among twitux, mitter were good. But gwibber was the best. GTwitter as most say the best had some issues. Gwibber supports some other protocols also. Only used a day. So far so good :-)
