Bug Description

Gwibber 3.4.2 on Ubuntu 12.04.1.

Older versions of Gwibber has an item on the message menu that was "view on Twitter" or "view on web" (I don't recall), but it was occasionally quite useful for dealing with anything that Gwibber couldn't handle natively. It was particularly useful for tracking down the context of replies, without having to sift through hundreds of messages in your feed.

The "view user profile" option that the current Gwibber has is no substitute. Most times when I select it, nothing happens. I think one time that it worked, it showed the profile information within Gwibber. Great, but that doesn't help me if I want to see info about a specific message that Gwibber doesn't provide.

I'm curious to know the reason why this feature was removed.
