    So I've poked around a bit, and am mildly disappointed with what I've found so far in my search. I need a Twitter client that can actually reliably deal with two accounts, and not mix them up. I tweet for an organization as well as my own account, and cannot have it bugging up and switching accounts as I've heard that Twidroid does. FYI, I'm using the free version of Twidroid now, and have no complaints about it thus far, but I have not been wowed by it either.

    Does anyone have any experience with any other clients, or should I just suck it up and throw down for Twidroid? I don't mind paying for an app, as long as it functions solidly.

    I'm not finding evidence that Seesmic supports more than one Twitter account at a time - the website doesn't appear to specify anywhere. Are you sure that it WILL support more than one account?

    Again I say, I'm already using Twidroid's free app. It does not support multiple accounts - that's only the paid app. I'm looking specifically for multiple account support.

    Sorry, by now it doesn`t, but it will in a future release. Twidroid Pro supports more than one account, but you`ll have to pay for it.

    Simple suggestion, until you do find the perfect one that supports two accounts, why not install your two favoutite Twitter apps and use one for personal and one for work?

    Dumb noob questions:
    1-How to install multiple versions of the same app?
    2-How to rename the shortcuts, so each can have a unique name?

    Try TweetDeck and TweetCaster.

    TweetCaster is the better of the two IMO, but they both handle multiple accounts fine. If you tweet more than you read, TC's widgets are good - you can set multiple tweet widgets with different colours. The reading widget isn't up to much but reading in the app itself is pretty good.

    I think the suggestion was your two favorite DIFFERENT twitter clients. :)

    In any case, Seesmic does multiple clients.

    Posting here today to revive this thread for new insight into TWITTER clients on Android. I've had a Galaxy Nexus for all of 8 weeks (after 10 years of Blackberries) and am surprised that there isn't a great robust client for Twitter (and occasional Facebook posting).

    Specific wants on my end are the ability to view my lists and esp. the ability to maintain lists (add/drop users) - UberSocial on BB was strong in this area.

    Beyond that, I've tried Uber & Plume, so far, and both have enough limitations that the search for a better solution continues. Any expert insight is very much appreciated / and glad to say, first post & looking forward to sharing what I can here...

    Didn't know Tweetdeck had gone/been dropped by Android until I did a factory-reset on my phone after an issue. It was still working reasonably well, although I could tell Facebook updates were no longer working but wasn't massively concerned.

    However, have downloaded the Ubersocial app and it's ok but I have to clear the cache every 1000 (or 250 or 500) tweets which is a bit of a nuisance as it basically stops the app working properly. The warning tells you this, but mine doesn't go back to working how it should (specifically, timeline picking up where you last scrolled to).

    Am I missing something in the settings or is this how it is on Android? A friend on BB tells me she doesn't have to do anything to hers.

    I'm beyond sad that the default Twitter app is the best I've seen. They're all so hideous. My biggest regret about switching to Android soon is losing Tweetbot. Hopefully I come across one soon that is decent looking.. :(

    I now use Falcon Pro. Carbon for Twitter is also good looking.

    Tweetcaster allows multiple accounts.
