TECHNOLOGY- Micro blogging platform Twitter has announced that its Twitter Lite app that was introduced in April is now available in over 24 countries across Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Europe.
In a blog post on Friday, Jesar Shah, Product Manager at Twitter wrote - "In April, we launched Twitter 'Lite', a new mobile Web experience that minimises data usage, loads quicker on slower connections, and is more resilient on unreliable mobile networks. Since then we've seen an increase in engagement - for example, tweets sent from Twitter Lite have increased more than 50 percent."
"Through on-the-ground user research and Play Store reviews, we received a lot of valuable feedback. Based on these positive results, we have decided to bring it to more people around the world," she added.
