Franz currently supports Slack, WhatsApp, WeChat, HipChat, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Google Hangouts,GroupMe, Skype and many more.

Franz allows you to add each service many times. This makes Franz the perfect tool to manage multiple business and private accounts all at the same time. You could even use five different Facebook Messenger accounts at once, if some inexplicable reason urges you to do so.

Franz 5 offers built in service synchronization.

The extensive plugin architecture of Franz 5 allows you add and create unlimited services to adapt Franz a 100% to your your needs – not the other way around.

Twitter CLI – a command-line power tool for Twitter. The CLI takes syntactic cues from the Twitter SMS commands, but it offers vastly more commands and capabilities than are available via SMS.

Features:
– Deep search: Instead of using the Twitter Search API, which only goes back 6-9 days, t search fetches up to 3,200 tweets via the REST API and then checks each one against a regular expression.
– Multi-threaded: Whenever possible, Twitter API requests are made in parallel, resulting in faster performance for bulk operations.
– Designed for Unix: Output is designed to be piped to other Unix utilities, like grep, comm, cut, awk, bc, wc, and xargs for advanced text processing.
– Generate spreadsheets: Convert the output of any command to CSV format simply by adding the –csv flag.
– 95% C0 Code Coverage: Well tested, with a 2.5:1 test-to-code ratio

Twitter API v1.1 requires OAuth for all of its functionality, so you’ll need a registered Twitter application.
A mobile phone number must be associated with your account in order to obtain write privileges.
