Cawbird is a modern and lightweight Twitter client for the GNOME 3 desktop. It features inline image and video preview, creation of lists and favorites, filtering of tweets and full text search. Cawbird is able to manage multiple Twitter accounts.

Cawbird is a fork of Corebird, which became unsupported after Twitter disabled the streaming API. Cawbird works with the new APIs and includes a few fixes and modifications that have historically been patched in to IBBoard's custom Corebird build on his personal Open Build Service account1.

Due to changes in the Twitter API2, Cawbird has the following limitations:

  • Cawbird will update every two minutes
  • Cawbird does not get notified of the following, which will be refreshed on restart:
    • Unfavourite
    • Follow/Unfollow
    • Block/Unblock
    • Mute/Unmute
    • DM deletion
    • Some list changes

All limitations are limitations imposed by Twitter and are not the fault of the Cawbird client.
