Twitter Lite launched for broader connections on slow networks

twitter lite

Twitter Lite, a new mobile web experience which minimizes data usage, loads quickly on slower connections, is resilient on unreliable mobile networks, and takes up less than 1MB on your device. It is also optimized for speed, with up to 30% faster launch times as well as quicker navigation throughout Twitter. Twitter Lite provides the key features of Twitter—your timeline, Tweets, Direct Messages, trends, profiles, media uploads, notifications, and more. With Twitter Lite, Twitter is more accessible to millions of people—with just a smartphone or tablet with a browser.

In addition, there is a data saver mode, which further reduces the amount of mobile data used. In this mode, we can see a preview of images and videos before choosing which ones to fully load. This can reduce the data usage by up to 70%, making it more affordable for you to use Twitter in areas where mobile data is expensive.

Twitter Lite is available globally by visiting on your smartphone or tablet.

Works great on Google Chrome.
