Twitter Debuts an Efficient New Web App Called Twitter Lite

Posted by at 11:50 am on April 6, 2017

Twitter today launched Twitter Lite, an new version of its mobile web site that acts like a full mobile app but is designed for markets with slow and/or expensive data service.

The web app uses the latest features of Google Chrome for Android to offer app-like features, such as push notifications, an offline mode, and a home screen icon. Twitter Lite takes up less than 1 MB on a device, and it has a data-saver mode that provides a rough preview of photos and videos β€” plus size information β€” so users can manually choose which media to download and view.

It is designed with developing markets in mind, but is available to everyone now at mobile.twitter.com.
