Install latest Corebird in Linux desktop via PPA - Corebird is a modern, easy and fun native Linux twitter client. It has inline image and video previews, and supports multiple accounts. So far, Corebird is nice and one of the best twitter apps available for Linux desktop.

Corebird finally reached v1.3.3 with bug fixes. Today I will show you the step-by-step tutorial how to install or update Corebird in Linux e.g Ubuntu 16.10, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Linux Mint 18.

Changelog and Bug Fixes v1.3.3

  • Support longer tweets in a few more places
  • Properly escape ampersand characters in user mentions to fix GtkLabel warnings about wrong escape characters in tooltips
  • Fix tweet length calculations for whitespace-only tweets
  • Check for duplicated entries in media arrays. This is apparently a problem on Twitter’s side but led to crashes in Corebird
  • Use the correct nsfw status of a tweet, i.e. the one that can actually show images.
  • Fix a crash when sending a tweet with multiple images attached
  • Fix tweet length calculation of quote tweets. This previously led to tweets getting rejected by the server even though Corebird claimed they were fine.
