Recently breaking into the mobile market, Seesmic for Android is making huge strides in Android’s Marketplace. With an eye-catching tabbed interface, Seesmic combines your messages into one fluid stream. Multiple account support is a standard feature of Seesmic for Android. While you won’t find Facebook account support, the ability to cross post messages to another Twitter account or Google Buzz is available.
Using the Seesmic homescreen widget, you can quickly fire off a tweet or catch up on the latest tweets from friends. Two retweet styles are available: RT and Quote. Use Quote to get the manual retweet style for editing and adding comments. Thought it lacks support for bookmarking services like Instapaper or Delicious, using the share option will allow you to send tweets to your favorite service for later.

Tweetdeck features multiple account support for Twitter and Facebook making it a great mobile app for managing multiple social networks. Other features of Tweetdeck include:
