Fring DOES NOT work fine with Twitter.

Native support implement just a small part of Twitter commands and also is very common to fail. See this here:

Twitter via GTalk in Fring WAS much better than native support. This used to work fine till a few weeks ago. Now even this way is impossible to use Twitter. See this here:

Bottom line: Fring today in fact does not support Twitter. I can’t understand why Fring blogs write that much about Fring and Twitter.
