South Africans can now download Twitter Lite

Twitter Lite South Africans can now download Twitter Lite
Kristine Garrett | 01 December, 2017, 17:02

The Twitter Lite app is available for Android from the Google Play Store and can also be accessed through a mobile browser.

Twitter has announced the release of Twitter Lite to 24 new countries including 6 African countries.

Twitter Lite is available right now on the Google Play Store in the following countries: 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. This is because these markets have fast internet connections that are able to handle the main Twitter app and more often than not, people there enjoy unlimited data plans.

Twitter launched the app in the Philippines back in September to conduct some on-the-ground user research, which yielded positive feedback.

Twitter introduced a Twitter Lite in April as a web application aimed at users reliant on unreliable mobile networks or slow internet connections. It has a file size of under 3MB, so it won't take up much of your storage space. Safety and performance improvements, GIF search, ranked Home timeline, and more features have been added to Twitter Lite over the past few months. The app has not been launched in India yet and is only available for Android smartphones as of now. It was buggy, very slow and most of the times I would miss notifications, but again, it was still in beta, which is what you expect when you use an unfinished product.

No matter where you are in the world, we want to make Twitter the best way for you to see what's happening in the world and talk about it. I hope there won't be any disappointments, though.
