Spaz Twitter client and Adobe AIR

Linux Mint and Twitter Client
This post is a result from finding some Twitter client that can be run on my Linux Mint 7.
After some minutes of finding, I found some popular programs such as
gTwitter, gWibber, Twittux and so on.
I can guarantee to you that in case of you want some eye candy, these program is totally eye pollutions for you.
Then I found some better looking clients, that are twhirl and Spaz.
Twhirl itself is quite well known, so I choose Spaz instead. However, both program required Adobe AIR for running.
