Choqok will be back soon

Good news is that I received several comments and emails from people who would like to work on Choqok and keep it up. And I asked kde sysadmins to give us a choqok-devel mailing list, to use it for communication between Choqok developers. will announce it when it become ready.

So, I will keep maintaining Choqok for some time, until we find someone to get my place and maintain it :)

The bad news is that Twitter had a deadline for it’s version 1.0 API which Choqok is using now, that deadline is over. and from today (pacific time). Choqok stopped working with Twitter. I’m sorry for that, but fortunately we have someone(Daniel Kreuter) who is working on it right now, and this issue will be fixed soon, and we’ll have a release when its ready. so stay tuned.

    It’s good to know that. I use Choqok everyday and now I need to log into the real Twitter website!

    Congratulations for the development of Choqok and Blogilo. They are really great apps.

  11. Dear Mehrdad, I would like to thank you very much for all your efforts on Choqok deveopment. It’s a fantastic piece of software and I love it. You don’t have to be sorry for anything, because you did a really great job here. :-)

    Thanks for fixing, staying tuned!


  13. I love Choqok! Hope to get it back soon….thx.


  14. Oh thank you so much. I’ve been struggling along with Hotot and the Twitter web site for the past few days and they’re both completely hopeless. Choqok is the only Twitter client I’ve seen that can handle the volume of tweets I get. An update to make it work again simply cannot come soon enough.

  21. It would be great to see your website moved to KDE infra. isn’t looking very good right now. The folks in #kde-www are great!
