Looking for one app to consolidate at least AIM and Skype, facebook and twitter, maybe even google messenger would be nice as well : )

Recommendations? Thanks : )

Adium can handle Aim, Google talk and Facebook. I don't think it can handle twitter yet, but a quick Google search revealed something about a new update currently in beta which will have twitter integration.

Unfortunately it cannot handle skype but as far as I know you won't have a lot of luck there. Apparently skype uses some sort of proprietary system so there are no third party skype chat apps. I could be wrong, but I searched for one once before and got that answer from somewhere.

Adium does have a plugin which works with skype, so you can control it from within one Adium window, but the real skype program is still running somewhere.
