The folks behind the popular Touiter app for Android have changed the name to Plume — because Twitter contacted the company and suggested that the original name was too close to “Twitter” and could cause some confusion.

The app lets users view their Twitter timelines, mentions, direct messages, and other data, and includes support for custom color schemes, picture previews, geotagging, sharing photos, links, and other items.

Along with the new name, Plume also has a new logo and the company launched a new version of Plume this week which features the new name as well as some bug fixes and a few new features such as support for native retweets in the Pume widgets.

Plume is available as a free download from the Android Market, or you can get the premium version for an ad-free experience for $2.73.
