Twitter Lite launches in South Africa
Twitter is the latest social network to release a data-lite version of its smartphone app, and it announced today it is now available in South Africa. Twitter Lite is meant to minimise mobile data usage, load quicker on slow connections, and be more resilient on unreliable mobile networks.
Facebook, Messenger and LinkedIn have also released similar apps.
There is currently only an Android app version available, but users also access Twitter Lite on the Web.
The app can now be downloaded from the Google Play Store by users living in SA, Algeria, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Egypt, Israel, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Malaysia, Nigeria, Nepal, Panama, Peru, Serbia, El Salvador, Thailand, Tunisia, Tanzania and Venezuela.
