Twoons, the C++/Qt twitter client that I wrote as a hobby project around 2011/2012 to teach myself C++ and Qt is no longer maintained. Partly because I pretty much stopped using Twitter as much as I used to and it basically had all the features that I needed. And despite me having released binaries (although pretty much only for Linux) I’m pretty sure I was the only user. As it was mostly a project to learn from, I decided to open source it. In the current state it won’t compile out of the box as I took out all the API keys. Besides that it made heavy use of the user streams API, that has since been killed off by twitter.
