“The New Twitter Lite app test in the Philippines Google Play Store is an opportunity to increase the availability of Twitter in this market,” says Twitter against TechCrunch. “The Philippines market has slow mobile networks and expensive data plans, while mobile devices with limited storage space are very popular here.”

In the app, it is possible to activate media-free mode, so that you download only specific images and videos. As a result, the app uses seventy percent fewer data.The app itself asks for 3MB of free space on a device.
