Twitter now offers its "lite" version

Twitter now offers its "lite" versionFollowing in the footsteps of Facebook Lite and YouTube Go, Twitter is launching a data-optimized version of its service aimed at people with sporadic network connections or located in the emerging markets, the company announced on Wednesday.

Twitter Lite works through a web browser, not a stand-alone phone application, but its appearance and functionality are nearly identical to what app users experience.

Focused on emerging markets and users in environments with unreliable connectivity, Twitter Lite takes up less than a megabyte and comes with a further data saver mode that blurs images and videos until they’re tapped. Twitter says the Lite version will load to the point of interactivity in under five seconds on most 3G devices, and claims that it can save up to 70 percent on data while loading 30 percent faster.

Twitter Lite is a Progressive Web App (PWA); the company says it was developed in partnership with Google. It has additional features on Android such as push notifications, and if you add it to your phone as a home screen shortcut it’ll appear in the app drawer just like a native app.
