Next thing to drive me crazy...

Twitter updated its API today, which ended up forever breaking my beloved Echofon Firefox extension (which is no longer updated due to corporate bullshit). I loved it because it would just hang out in the add-on bar and wasn't shouting at me in the face like every other Firefox Twitter extension that requires a sidebar to be open (and I HATE sidebars). Does anyone know of a good Twitter client for Firefox that I can make largely unobtrusive like I could with Echofon?

I love Echofon too, and was complaining bitterly earlier this morning. Got a random response from someone I don't know pointing to a patch:

I don't usually install software from random websites but it's Echofon, and it was a bit of a desperation, so I pulled out the scratch laptop and gave it a shot.

So far it's working fine and nothing unfortunate seems to have happened. I'll be keeping an eye out, of course, but right now I'm just glad I have my Echofon back.
