I still prefer Seesmic.
First, it opens and updates far, far faster, in my experience. I think that Seesmic is more attractive - I prefer a cleaner, more minimal look. You can display many images internally to the app, without needing to open the browser.
Right now, when I try to open up somebody's profile in Touitteur, I get an occasional force close. Within another user's profile, I can see the count of who they follow and who follow them, but not the actual list. Touitteur has a menu option called "Refresh Trends and Lists" but I see no way to actually see trends or lists.
In Seesmic, in addition to actually supporting lists, if I go into somebody's profile, I can see the tweets that they have marked favorites, see their lists, see who they follow, and who follow them.
For right now, Sessmic is a far more complete Twitter client app.

Touiteur certainly does things well, but it doesn't do everything I'd like it to. As mentioned before, the inability to view peoples followers/ing lists is kind of a bummer, along with not being able to add or remove people from my personal lists.
I don't believe Touiteur has the ability to tweet across multiple accounts with a single tweet, the way that Seesmic now does- I would love to see this feature Touiteur!
Not to go off topic, but TweetCaster supports just about everything that's missing from Touiteur, except for cross-account tweets. Anyhow, Touiteur is my main Twitter client for the time being. Without list support of any kind, I may jump back to TweetCaster.
I agree with Doogald- Seesmic is a more complete Twitter client. Touiteur is missing a lot of small features that hopefully will make it into the next version- or an update. However, even though Touiteur is missing a lot of small features, the features it does have, it does well and with very limited FC's (on my Droid.)

We should do this right and have a poll to include all of the more popular Twitter apps. I will set that up and merge the threads.
*** OK, instead of merging, here is a link to the poll.
*** Strike that... the thread above was deleted.
This thread is open again, sorry about that.

I love Touiteur - the looks of it, the UI - I love the drop down box to compose and send a tweet. I absolutely LOVE the fact that I can select to have my timeline in different colors, and then I can completely customize what colors I want my friends to be. I think it's beautiful. I do agree, there are a couple things missing from the app, like the ability to change my profile picture, among the others mentioned above. And I do think TweetCaster is an amazing twitter app. But for right now, my favorite is Touiteur. (Sorry, I didn't even mention Seesmic in here at all. Just never been a fan!!)@JennBailey0706

All other apps take to long to update. Tama works on improving his apps daily. That is what I love the most (dedication to perfection).
Reminds me of an old dev friend in the RIM app business who I miss a little bit (well not all that much anymore).

I'm a fan of both, particularly since HootSuite, while now 1.5 compatable, doesn't seem to be playing nicely. If I really had to choose, I'd say Touiteur, but only by a hair. It's a bit over the top, but the level of customization you can apply is what pushes it over the top for me.Submariner/Geek/Tech addict
