    (a month ago)

    Twitter is testing a new "lite" version of its Android app. This is an app version of a mobile web site it launched earlier this year called, quite appropriately, Twitter Lite. It requires less mobile data to work. The idea is to allow mobile users to employ Twitter in emerging markets where data is expensive or hard to find. The app has been added to the Google Play Store, but only in the Philippines where mobile data is expensive and slow...

Pretty good - light, fast, and a great spacious, clean, layout. I like this version's layout/design better than the original Twitter app actually. One pet peeve: can't exit the app in the usual/common double back keypress. It leads me back to literally every page I have viewed previously. So, one less star. It's an important function to me. Update: I still feel the same about the overall feel of the layout/design -- clean, spacious, organized. But I realized that the action buttons (reply, rt, like, etc.) are too small, so it makes it easy to make a mistake. Also, can Twitter Lite have more or better notification options? Nothing too fancy, but like, maybe an option for push notifications for incoming DMs and tweets from people we follow/prioritize?

Wished I could rate it 10/5 stars because you have now added the download image feature. And I could also tweet vids and images fast unlike the Twitter app. :)

Until the app would include allowing to switch to multiple accounts will I use this app. Navigating back to previous using back button isn't that seamless.

The app is good but the images load slower. It would take 1-2 seconds before the other images load if you scroll down

Switched to this version because 1) occupies less phone storage, and 2) app is hella quick. I wish there's: 1) an option for timestamp instead of 12 hour time format, 2) modal for images when user presses an image for few seconds because I don't like how I still have to click the image to see its entirety, and 3) an option for me to opt out features I have no need of like Lists and Moments. Oh and thank you for the hard work, software engineers! 😊

Practical and pleasing layout, and great responsiveness. I would have given this 5 stars if it weren't for the fact that when pressed, the 'follower requests' bar leads to an account page with the handle '@follower_requests'. The page is empty, except for a gray space at the lower half with "This account does not exist" written. A fix would be greatly appreciated.

Perfect timing! I am having trouble with the memory on my phone lately, that is why I installed this app the moment I saw the ad. So far, so good. I wish you will put night mode on this one too. Good job Devs!!
