LoopingCall - periodically call a  function.
TimerService - wrapper for the twisted service with LoopingCall

I use LoopingCall and write my own wrapper for the service,
but TimerService is really more universal for it.

More useful - create twisted Service and Plugins for your application,
use component architecture this interface adaptation.
In that variant you will construct TimerService from scratch =).
