I am testing Gwibber also on Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 a3.
I noted that the crash continuosly occurs when starting Gwibber from the application menu; but if Administration->Gwibber Social Settings is launched first, then the Apply button is pressed, then Gwibber properly starts.

I hope this could help developers.

I cannot replicate this behavior; when I attempt to load the Gwibber
Social Settings, I get a crash stating that "Sorry, the program
'gwibber-preferences' closed unexpectedly". So I can't even get to the
point of clicking it's Apply button and then loading Gwibber normally.

Hello, I don't know if it's the same bug, but gwibber ceased to work after 9.10 -> 10.04 online upgrade.

I am now running stable Lucid Lynx, after official release (all updates to May 6th, 2010).

When I try to launch gwibber from the menu (or upper-right menu), nothing happens.

If I open a terminal and type "gwibber", here is what I get:

rsandu@richelieu:~$ gwibber
