The creator and main dev for Laconia filed the below wishlist in the Launchpad bugtracker here: https://launchpad.net/bugs/289748

"Laconica (http://laconi.ca/) is a Free Software alternative to Twitter. Among other features, it supports the Twitter API exactly.

Since many Free Software supporters use Laconica, it would be good to include support for it in this plasmoid. Since the only difference between a Laconica instance like identi.ca or army.twit.tv and Twitter's API is the URL, it really shouldn't be in a separate package.

Note that Gnome's deskbar and Gnome Do already support Laconica in their Twitter updaters."
