Twitter annoyances

After Twitter disabled basic authentication yesterday, basically all Open Source Twitter clients ceased working (e.g. bug #629192). I tried some clients from the Fedora repositories, but none seems to work. I liked the simplicity of Pino, but now it's just dead wood. Mauku on the N900 is also broken. Not even the personal timeline RSS feed works anymore, although still advertised on the Twitter website.

ars technica has an article which describes the the problem with FOSS clients on page 2 and it doesn't look good so far. It seems finally to be time to switch to (me).
