Twitter Introduces “Twitter Lite”

Twitter on Thursday introduced “Twitter Lite,” a streamlined version of Twitter designed primarily for users who have less-powerful mobile devices, have slower 2G connections, or expensive data plans.Twitter said Twitter Lite will use less memory on mobile devices, download more quickly and it is more resilient on unreliable movie networks. The new service also allows users to screen and then select images and data before downloading, reducing costs where mobile data is expensive. Also, Twitter Lite works through a web browser, not as a stand-alone phone app.

Twitter said it is partnering with Vodafone (VOD) in India, which has 200 million users, to promote Twitter Lite as a platform for cricket league updates.
