Twitter launches 'Lite' version for India
Twitter on Thursday launched a lighter version of its platform - Twitter Lite - in India, which is among its top five audience markets globally.
The browser-based product, which will also be rolled out in countries like Indonesia and Philippines soon, uses 70 per cent less data and loads 30 per cent faster compared to the app.
It will be available in 42 languages, including six Indian languages (Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Kannada, Gujarati and Marathi).
"India is a critical market for us. It is among our top five audience markets and among the fastest growing. Our goal is to make Twitter available to everybody and we believe Twitter Lite will help in that direction," Twitter Managing Director Asia Pacific Maya Hari said.
