Twitter Lite expands to 24 more countries

Also, in case the Twitter Lite app for Android is unavailable in your country, you can still access the web-based version of Twitter Lite by heading over to mobile.twitter.com from the web browser installed on your smartphone or tablet.

Twitter Lite first launched globally on the web in April, offering all of Twitter's core features including timeline, Tweets, Direct Messages, trends, profiles, media uploads, and notifications, while consuming less data. Twitter says it is "more resilient on unreliable mobile networks", like 2G and 3G. The app has not been launched in India yet and is only available for Android smartphones as of now. Just like Facebook Lite, Twitter's this Lite version is here with low data consumption.

The announcement was made by Jesar Shah, the product manager at Twitter, via the company's blog.

The reason for this, according to Twitter, is the vast amount of data the Twitter app consumes, which has prevented it becoming popular in emerging markets, where internet connections are as strong elsewhere.

"This will allow us to do it faster, cheaper and with a better experience than we've had before". Now an additional 24 countries will also be able to download it through the Play Store, even though the app is functionally identical to the PWA. So by launching this Twitter Lite edition, it will become available more easily in various countries for masses. The company has 330 million monthly active users, 80% of whom are outside the U.S. You can use Twitter and Twitter Lite to get real-time updates on news, sports, entertainment, politics, and other topics that matter most to you.

Here's the full list of countries where Twitter Lite is launching in the Google Play Store: Algeria, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Egypt, Israel, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Malaysia, Nigeria, Nepal, Panama, Peru, Serbia, El Salvador, South Africa, Thailand, Tunisia, Tanzania, and Venezuela.
