>  I wouldn't want to bring Gwibber back into the manual as it will not be
the default app and will conflict with Friends.  Remember that the manual
is mainly for people new to Ubuntu, so we have to stick with the default
apps.  If Friends app can be installed then the Microblogging section
should be resurrected and re-written to include it, but I have yet to find
how to install it.  Even if it can be installed, it may be best to ignore
it for now as it is very much work in progress.
