Twtiux is still alive on some distros due to some cool-rockin-packagers that are still writing patches to keep him alive while Twitter seems to keep changing the API every week.
Besides that as many users may already noted there wasn't any releases or stuff goin on on the last couple months; the main reason is that there is no point on maintain a twitter-only client right now since there is already a multi-networks client out. Plus myself and the rest of contributors don't have the time to develop such thing at the moment.
I want to thank everyone for the help, translators, packages, patch writers and contributors at any level. It's been a great experience for me, i met a lot of cool people and learned a lot about open source development/community... besides the coding itself.
