Bug Description

Binary package hint: gwibber

On Gwibber, when I want to @ many people in one tweet/dent/etc, the tendency is to click the reply button for each message I want to reply to. However, it allows only one contact to @. I have to manually copy and paste the contact names to put them in one message.

being able to reply to all users that you would like and it adds a @ in front of the name

Is that the right info? if not please add your version or at the very least let us know if that is close/correct

Hello. I'm not sure if I understand you correctly. To clarify, what I meant
was, the use can't click the reply button to have many @'s to different
users in 1 tweet. Clicking "reply" on more than 1 tweet in the timeline will
erase the existing message in the test box.

The user can still manually add multiple @'s though

This bug is still not fixed on GWibber 2.91.1 on Ubuntu.

Unfortunately this still isn't present in Gwibber 3.0.0.1

Considering that most Twitter clients will (by default) reply to all users mentioned in a tweet, it would probably make sense to implement this in Gwibber. If you're having a conversation with multiple people, it isn't particularly convenient to have to remember to copy everyone else's names when you reply to a tweet.

Xavier Guillot (valeryan-24) wrote :

A "Reply all" entry in the menu available when clicking on the twitter or identica icon in right of the message would be great, putting in the tweet window automatically @ and names of all users in post to whom we want to answer.
