Thors are extremely good in TvT since they can defend against Banshees, which are a popular opener as well. Plus they have a ton of hit points and can be repaired. If your opponent does an early Tank push you'll be able to kill it fairly easily, or at least keep him back. This build order will also give you enough Marines and a Hellion to do an early push to put some pressure on your opponent and kill off some of his army early on.
Start researching upgrades for infantry and vehicles, then build up a big army of Siege Tanks & Marauders to push out with. Expand when you attack and you'll have 3 bases up and running to help you build a massive army.
After you get your expansion up you can add on a lot more Barracks, plus tech up to a Starport and get a Raven if your opponent is still using cloaking. Ravens are also extremely good against Marauders, their Point Defense Drone will make Marauders do 0 damage for a short time.
