A new version of Linux Twitter app Corebird is now available for download.
Corebird 1.7 is a small update on Twitter. It introduces a couple of minor improvements and solves a few small issues.
This update makes it easier to mention people you don’t follow in your tweets. You now can click on hashtags and @mentions in Twitter profiles to be directed to the relevant search term or linked Twitter account inside the app.
Corebird 1.7 now fetches unfollowed/unfollowing matching accounts from the Twitter server when you @mention an account.
The app also lets you tweet a photo without having to add text – perfect for those meme-only mic-drop ripostes.
Some other changes in the Corebird 1.7.x release are:
- Videos which are larger than your screen are scaled down
- Profiles say when an account is suspended
- Improvements in display of private profiles
- Small fix for display of Instagram images in the timeline
- Correct AppData
