I'm not sure how many options there are.   I've been using TTYtter for 
awhile (  It's written in Perl 
and seems to be pretty flexible and versatile.  The developer is also 
pretty open to feedback and fixing bugs.

I've only tried one, the microblogging plugin for Pidgin.  It works OK but 
I don't see how to do Twitter-type things like retweets etc, and any 
keypress tends to throw you into the text window which is a bit annoying. 
Still, at least it seems to read OK.

There was some talk at one stage of a Linux port of Qwitter, but I've not 
heard anything lately about it.
