Tuples are immutable while lists are mutable. This for example has the effect that tuples are hashable and therefore, can be used in sets and as keys in dictionaries.
Also, this makes lists the better option when you need to addi or remove items. If you doesn't, as mentioned in the article, the tuples has lower memory footprint.
