Twitter is testing a new Lite version app, an alternative to its mobile website launched earlier this year using less data and speeding up load times. The app will be useful in growing markets where data is slow and comes at a premium through mobile networks. A spokesperson for Twitter told TechCrunch that the app is just an experiment and that it’s still uncertain the app will make it to other markets.
TechCrunch stated the Twitter Lite app will keep many of the familiar features from the full Twitter app. Twitter Lite is optimized for smaller storage devices and will only take up under 3MB.
