Hotot is a micro-blogging desktop client for Twitter as well as Statusnet/GNUsocial, developed in Python as an open source application. Despite the fact that it is still in its early stages of development, as stated on the official website,[3] it has succeeded to achieve the "Best Linux Twitter Client" in a poll published on WebUpd8.org against four Linux Twitter clients; namely Gwibber, Pino, Turpial, and Choqok with 1021 voters.[5] On February 9, 2014 it was announced that the client is being discontinued.[2]
