Software

It is very common (and frustrating) to install an Adobe Air application on your Linux system and find that it is not working. After all, the Adobe Air for Linux is still in alpha stage. It is not feature complete and does not support most of the applications.

1. TweetDeck

TweetDeckTweetDeck is an interesting Twitter client that allows you to organize your tweets into more manageable levels. It enables the user to split their main feed into topics or group specific columns allowing a broader overview of tweets.

There are several useful features in TweetDeck. One of them is the auto-updating of the Twitter status so that you know when Twitter is down. The next feature is that you can continue to send tweets even when you are offline (or when Twitter is down). Tweets and direct messages are queued and then sent automatically when you are back online.
