Echofon for Twitter 2.5.2 – Multiupload

So apparently echofon has discontinued its support for its twitter client on firefox, which of course, makes me a very very sad panda.

It’s quite difficult to find a good alternative, since the rest of the 3rd party twitter clients out there are basically choke full of useless features I don’t need. I mean, ppl who use echofon should know it’s selling pt is its simplicity, no?

So imagine my elation when I found mozilla has an archive for addons! even discontinued ones.

Firefox’s Echofon for Twitter builds –

They have 2.5.2 as their latest one, I’m not too sure whether that’s the latest release, but 27th sept 2012 seems about right to me.

and for good measure, I’ve uploaded the xpi on Multiupload, Just holla in the comments section should the links be dead.

As long as twitter doesn’t screw up anything(or Mozilla, with its crazy among of totally unnecessary  updates) this should work.



Through a couple of comments over here, I found out that Twitter has discontinued its API 1.0, thus rendering the vanilla, discontinued Echofon for Firefox obsolete.. 😦

However thanks to Gio, who left a comment on my post with a link to a working(tested it myself) version, I’m glad to say that ECHOFON FOR FIREFOX IS NOT DEAD YET!!

Echofon for Firefox Ver. 6 FIXED

Echofon for Firefox Ver.6 FIXED – Mulit-Upload Mirror

*NOTE: If you are downloading from the 1st link, latest version is Ver.6 as of time of writing, ie. “echofon_for_twitter-2.5.2-fx-jahiy-6.xpi” for Ver. 6

**NOTE: Once you’ve downloaded and unzip the above-mentioned folder, you will have two files, Ver. 1 and Ver 6., I have no idea why 1 is in it but just install Ver. 6 and ignore Ver. 1

And for those who are unsure whether this is safe,  I managed to track down the original creator of the fix, and all his codes are published here,on github. granted I am no tech whiz but I don’t think you would share your codes to the public if you had any malicious intentions?

Still, he/she claims those codes on github are outdated so it’s really up to you to judge. I for one use twitter for recreational purposes so it’s not that impt to me. All I can say is the fix works for me with no problem whatsoever.

I’ll update though, should any thing pops up.

Big props to Gio, for the heads up, and of course the creator of the fix, jahiy!

Enjoy! And thanks guys for your comments! 😀

    Twitter has discontinued it’s API version 1.0. So echofon for firefox is now completely dead, unless someone hacks in support for the new twitter API.
