If you aren’t using the official Twitter client for Android, chances are you use one of only a few other worthwhile alternatives. One such is Seesmic, which today has updated to version 1.6 in the Android Market. The latest update does more to make Seesmic a total social networking solution rather than a mere Twitter app with the introduction of full Facebook support. Now you can update your status, view your feed, comment and like posts, as well as access Facebook Pages and more.

Additionally, for those who just can’t keep their tweets within the 140 character limit, Seesmic now supports Twitlonger. New widgets for all supported services in Seesmic also come with the update, along with several other key enhancements. See the full list in the press release below.
