My main operating system is Windows 7 but i usually have Ubuntu running in a virtual machine. I use Tweetdeck for my main operating system and my Android phone and i am looking forward to start using a Twitter client in the virtual machine too. What is the best Twitter client that works with Linux and in my case Ubuntu ?

Personally, I don't know and would honestly suggest just using the Website. I don't use twitter that much and thats all the help i can give :). Like I say, I would just leave the web site open in its own window.

The top three native Linux Twitter clients that I know of are: Hotot, followed by Gwibber and Choqok.
Some other interesting native Linux Twitter clients are: Twitux, gTwitter, Qwit and Mitter.

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS or later already have " Gwibber " preinstalled. It also support other services too like facebook, indenti.ca, etc

If you want, give Hotot a shot.
