Bug Description

Binary package hint: gwibber

Gwibber is now a really good tool to manage several social services within a single tool.

Something that could improve its usability for people who manage quite of a few of those (e.g. several twitter accounts) would be to show the avatar linked to the account in the icons used to select which account will be used to send a status update.

At this time, Gwibber uses the service logo and a user-picked color (completed by a mouse over tooltip) ; instead of a color (or maybe in addition to it?), I think an icon that would combine the service logo and the avatar used for the given account would make it much easier to pick the right account one wants to use for a given update.

Given the potentially high embarrassment factor of posting using the wrong account, this would be a very welcome enhancement.

The user account icon alongside the service (Twitter, icon should be used when available, as every Twitter application out there is doing this and the user will mostly expect it from Gwibber.

In addittion, on Gwibber, the color is used on the new tweet tooltip, but NOT on the mouseover account icon that popups on every tweet/message. As a result, you'll have two or more identical icons with the same tooltip if you have more than one account with the same provider. Also, you will never know from what account the tweet/message comes from. Should I issue a separate bug?
