Touiteur 2.0 adds new widgets, columns, and kitchen sink of Twitter app features

Touiteur has been updated to become an even better Twitter application. I tweeted last month that the Toutieur 2.0 beta was amazing, and now these new features are available to help convince you.

The most noticeable is the user interface, which has added a new column to handle lists, search, favorites, and conversations. It’s also more swipe-friendly for Android 2.0 or higher. And if you use a homescreen application that supports scrollable widgets, Touiteur now supports that in a variety of sizes.

There have also been recent changes to Seesmic and Twidroyd, so the debate will continue rage on which Twitter app is best. Those of you who have selected Touiteur as the leader can add these features to your list of pro’s:
