There's no need for a dedicated social media client; much more convenient to use this and have my accounts with me on any computer via a browser interface.

This zimlet is my favorite client to use twitter from. Lots of cool features. And just a tab away in my Zimbra Desktop!

A great way to quickly glance at your social networks without leaving your email program.

Apologies. This is not a review but there is nowhere to send a support request. I installed the zimlet on the server successfully on 6.07, and enabled it in the default COS and in my user account but nowhere do I see any option in preferences to enable the social zimlet.

Any advice appreciated.
