    I know Gwibber's been kept back from being default this time around, so perhaps Karmic+1 will be social from the start instead?
    I think too many changes happened (the switch to the new GDM which required an entire rewrite of the fast-user-switch-applet, for example) that prevented more polishing. And gwibber in Karmic is being upgraded to 2.0, which is still in development. I guess all the polishing will be made for Karmic+1.

    Can't say I'm a fan, either.

    That's probably because Gwibber is trying very hard to be a all-in-one solution for dozens of microblogs at the same time. Since I'm only a Twitter users, I prefer the KISS approach of Gwibber 1.

    Re: indicator applet after empathy is removed

    I have two bones to pick with indicator-applet integration at the moment. I have pidgin and empathy installed (im happy to test empathy but it does not have the features I need). They both show up in the indicator-applet.

    However, there does not appear to be a way to minimize either pidgin or empathy to the applet. Both still minimize to their own icon in the notification area (or if you like with pidgin you can remove the indicator icon but if you close the window pidgin closes). This is redundant.

    Also I do not use evolution so it would be convenient to be able to remove it from showing up under the indicator-applet menu.

    I have to agree. If Empathy/Pidgin can not be minimized to the indicator-applet, and the indicator-applet ONLY, the very purpose of its existence (uncluttering the tray) is defeated. I hope this is only a temporary situation until the actual Karmic release.

    And yeah, I wouldn't mind configuring which apps appear in it and which do not, either.

    Install pidgin-libnotify and the old Jaunty behavior will return for Pidgin - minimizes to indicator applet.

    Since Pidgin is no longer default, I guess neither is this package.

    After an update one or two days ago empathy no longer has its own icon but uses the indicator-applet instead.
    I don't know if pidgin behaves so too.

    Re: indicator applet after empathy is removed

    Guys there is indicator applet and indicator applet sessions ,two of them which can be added to the panel.

    The latter seems to behave like the FUSA applet from yore.

    Try it .Lots of work being done to improve the user interaction as promised.

    Not sure if any of it is useful though.
