Twitter Lite has been in the Google Play Store in 24 more countries around Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East, as well as Latin America,

Twitter Lite on the mobile site or via the Google Play Store is fast, uses up less space, and also is data-friendly. It also loads fast on 2G and 3G networks and provides offline support just in case you temporarily lose your connectivity. The Lite version reduces data usage and also uses a data saver mode to download only the pictures or videos you choose to see and minimizes install size to under 3MB so it doesn't take much room on your smartphone.
Twitter Lite was introduced in April to help reduce data usage, allow quick loads on sluggish connections, and cause more resilience on unstable mobile networks. Twitter says since launch it has observed an increase in activity-- for instance, Tweets sent from Twitter Lite have escalated more than 50%.
The company says it would like to make Twitter Lite more visible, so in September it releases the version in the Philippines for on-the-ground customer research study and PlayStore reviews where it was valued for its modest size, fast loading, and low data usage.
Based on these encouraging results, we have chosen to bring it to more people around the globe.
