Kzalek is a decent Adobe Air Twitter client for Arabic users. Adobe Air apps have problems in viewing Arabic fonts in Mac and Linux (as well Flash). Kzalek solves this issue and also provides right to left (RTL) view for Arabic tweets.

What makes Kzalek lovely is it’s simple minimal interface plus the features that are presented in small neat icons. Features like translating tweets to Arabic, expanding shortened URLs using Untiny service, and uploading images to TwitPic.

Kzalek still in beta supporting an Arabic interface only for now. It seems promising in future as global Twitter client in case the English interface is supported. Note that Spaz Adobe Air app also support Arabic encoding in tweets.
