Twipstr :: Makes it more fun to update your Twitter status!

Well... There's a plenty of Twitter clients out there, I know. Lot of them make it fun to read your Twitter stream. But I had no luck to find one that makes it really fun to update your Twitter status. That is why I decided to create Twipstr. It's minimalistic, but it does its job well. And you'll love those handy pictograms! Created for people who want to post tastefully ;)

BTW, Twipstr is cross-platform, so it will run on any modern operation system: Linux, Mac OS X, Windows...


  • If you're running Ubuntu, it's recommended to install Twipstr via PPA-repository using the following command:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ki0n/desktop-apps && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install twipstr
  • Otherwise, use one of the download options below:

    • DEB (Debian based Linux distros, e.g. Ubuntu)
    • JAR (Cross-Platform: Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, etc. - put downloaded file into a folder of your choice and double-click it or run it using java -jar twipstr.jar command)
  • If you're updating from previous version and want to get new pictograms/emojis, go to settings and click "Reset symbols"!

NOTE: You must have Java installed to run Twipstr. If you don't have it installed yet, you can download it from here: (Installing from DEB or PPA resolves dependencies automatically though ;))
