Best (and Twitter) Linux Client

I have used Twitter a lot but I've discovered now and some of my friends only use that so now I'm looking around for a good client for Linux. I use several distros such as Ubuntu with Gnome and several KDE based distros (Mandriva, OpenSUSE, CentOS, Fedora).
Which are some of the best clients?
Also, are there clients that work with both and Twitter so I could just use one client?

So what can gwibber do for you? It’s a microblogging client that supports various plattforms [1], where it can get messages from (polling every n minutes) and send them to – you can simultaniously use more then one of these services It offers you a search function, a spell checker and an error log.

1 RSS, Digg, Laconica, Twitter, Pidgen,, Facebook, Jaiku, Pownce, Flickr and
I don't use social networks so I have no idea if it's the best or not.
