Twitter has confirmed that the Twitter Lite Android app is being run currently in test mode in the Philippines. The new lite version for Android uses less mobile data to work which is useful for emerging markets where data networks are often slower and more expensive.
In a report by TechCrunch, Twitter Lite app in the Google Play Store is an opportunity for the company to increase the availability of Twitter in the market.
“The Philippines market has slow mobile networks and expensive data plans, while mobile devices with limited storage are still very popular there. Twitter Lite helps to overcome these barriers to usage for Twitter in the Philippines.” said a Twitter spokesperson.
