    Whether the people you want to follow are on it. That's the #1 reason you'd use one over the other. Related to this -- whether the people you want to follow you are on it. That's also the #1 reason you'd use one over the other :). In other words -- the relevant difference is "who".

    Twitter offers only one additional language besides English, Japanese. Identi.ca offers a wide range of languages.

    And Identi.ca is an open source. It also has Jabber support with both ATOM and FOAF feeds.

    More people on twitter, but I like identi.ca. You can also get some good backlinks and seo from identi.ca.
