As nice as it is to get stable updates to Adium, 1.3.4 is overshadowed by the release of 1.4 beta, which includes support for Twitter and IRC.
1.4b also has a ton of other improvements and fixes, especially in the area of group chats. […] Why do group chats matter so much? Well, for one thing, Twitter for Adium runs in a group chat window, so the devs likely had to get that part of the interface running smoothly to roll out Twitter support.
Oh, that makes sense. I’m suddenly a little less annoyed that Twitter support in a stable release of Adium is so far away. (Also, I don’t give a fuck anymore because there are usable Twitter clients on the Mac again.)
