Well, currently I use gwibber (from experimental) and I have 2 identi.ca
account configured in it and a twitter account. I don't want to see the
same thing twice so I have the @debian account in (manual) send-only.

If I enable the @debian in receive mode also, I can watch the replies to
@debian in a separate stream but I will get all the dents of followers
in the main "messages" view. And I want to keep a mixed view of
twitter/identi.ca and not have one for each account.

How do I know which one is popular?

And I would rather avoid  having to watch many sources, I have to work
also. :-)

With IRC I can be highlighted once there's something to send and I don't
necessarily have to do the counting myself.
