Chirpeur is so much cleverer than Plume, I'm disappointed that suck an awesome app now has a totally lame name.
Philippe Boblet commented
@pauland Plume CMS est sous GPL... open source. Le nom n'est donc pas une marque, il me semble. Ça copie un peu mais bon c'est "Plume" :) Pas "Plume CMS" ;)
Ah !! j'avais une idée mais on peut plus en proposer ??
Et personne ne s'inquiète que ce soit pris par Plume CMS ?
Plume ça sonne bien en français. D'une part on peut penser à la plume de l'oiseau, et la plume pour compenser. C'est vraiment une bonne idée.
Maintenant il faut être dans l'optique de la prononciation dans les autres langues, à commencer par l'anglais.
Je vote pour.

I think it should be something a little more 'stick it to the man' like 'Poacher'... Show those Twitter people what we think of them acting all ridiculous about it.

How is this leading? This name is super lame...
Plume means "plume" in English.
Before Seesmic became popular a person probably wouldn't have thought to search for it as a Twitter app. As long as the app is tagged properly in the Market it shouldn't be a problem finding it when I person searches for Twitter.
These top two names are really making me wanna switch to another app.
Touiteur was at least a cool spin on the name sad to see it go. But the name should be reflective of what the app does. I really don't think new browsers to the android market are going to thin of Plume or CuiCui when they look for a twitter app. IMO

CuiCui is too much a French name. Everyone outside France does'nt know how tot pronounce it. So that's not a good marketing name.
Plume is better in that case.
But... it means "feather" in French?
So... what about "Feather" for a name?
English name, so it would atract much more users!!
Will be deleting if it is named either of the lame top 2. taint! is by far best choice.

Are you kidding?
I just voted for "Weese" sound of whistle relate to the touiteur logo.

Plume is lame vote CuiCui!!!!
Uhhhmmm. This is the worst name i've ever seen. Might switch apps
@Mickle75 there is an app called Plumes but it is a Live Wallpaper. I think putting the title as "Plume (Twitter)" just like it is now would suffice. Tweetdeck does the same thing in their posting in Android Market.
Alexandre Ast commented
Plume ? Quel rapport avec le fait de tweeter ? CuiCui est bien plus approprié !
I agree Michael! Changing my CuiCui vote over to Plume. Hopefully this will move Plume out of reach.
Much easier to pronounce and less chance of mispelling it (ciuciu?)
