I can almost bet that you would enjoy tweeting via the Twitter lite web app, it is way swift and can be accessed at mobile.twitter.com Twitter lite and Twitter share same the key features which are your timeline, Tweets, Direct Messages, trends, profiles, media uploads, notifications, and more. It was launched to correct some of the barriers observed by users on the original version which includes slow mobile networks, expensive data plans or lack of storage on mobile devices. Although, it can basically be accessed via browsers, twitter assures users that limited internet connections would not be a problem.
Twitter official page reports its entire user base to be pegged at about 313 million which is less compared to Facebook which has about 1.86 billion monthly active users. Hopefully this platform would help increase Twitter user base as the app is targeted at new users. However, this is way overdue as Facebook already launched her “lite web app” in 2009. I wonder what took twitter this long as it appears that Lite apps are becoming quite popular these days.
Twitter lite would ensure that users get real-time updates on news, sports, entertainment, politics and other topics that matter most all over the world. All you need is a smartphone or tablet with a browser.
The app takes just about 1MB storage space of your mobile device, which makes it easier to work on cheap handset while the version on Android phones has a home screen app that enable users get notifications, alerts and temporary offline access.
