Twitter Client Arms Race Continues – Seesmic To Up The Ante

Seesmic will unveil a new version of it’s Twhirl Twitter client tonight at a press event starting around 6:30. Not many details on what they’re launching yet, other than the fact that they’ve rebuilt Twhirl, which has been downloaded 1.2 million times.

Seesmic isn’t releasing details, but the site they’ve set up for the new product shows the screenshot above, with multiple columns like TweetDeck, the new kid on the block that has taken the hearts of the Twitter elite. TweetDeck is far and away the most popular desktop client for Twitter.

More details when the event starts, which you can watch from home here. You can sign up for the new version here. Note that I am an investor in Seesmic.
