Using Ubuntu 10.04
I have a twitter account but am almost a total novice at it. I have used twitter from a web browser ok, so I thought I would try to make use of the Ubuntu facilities.

At the top right hand side of my desktop screen I can get a dropdown with broadcast accounts, and I have added my twitter into it, username and password.

So, I am now sat looking at it, not knowing what to do now.... what do I do now???

:confused:

Ah. The blank text field which is seen in the same dropdown is used, beneath my name, it can be typed into, and a return key sends this text direct to my twitter account. It shows there as coming into twitter via gwibber, which sounds familiar.

Run Gwibber from your Applications/Internet menu. Then you can see your Twitter posts and post to it.
