Keeping in view the ease for its users, Twitter introduces Lite version for faster mobile services. This lite version is especially designed for emerging markets who do not have fast internet speed.

Twitter Introduces Lite Version for Faster Mobile Service
Twitter competitors, especially Facebook, has announced lite version of its app, back in 2015. So we can say that Twitter took very time to introduce the data-friendly lite version. It loads quickly on slower connections, minimizes data usage, and takes up less than 1 MB on your device. This lite version will not be a separate mobile application but will be usable in a web browser.
Twitter’s vice president of product, Keith Coleman, said in an interview.
“We didn’t feel like we were reaching these other countries well enough, and this will allow us to do it faster, cheaper and with a better experience than we’ve had before,”
Here is what twitter announced regarding this lite version.

The main focus of the company is to launch Lite version in emerging markets across Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Africa. With the introduction of this version, Twitter is hoping to increase its number of users in countries like India, Brazil and Philippines.
It seems like Twitter is now quite serious to increase its users. As recently, Twitter has revealed some attractive ways to provide more ease to its character limit. Now Twitter has Stopped Counting Username in 140-Character Limit. Earlier, when users have to reply to a group or individual, twitter counted username characters in 140-character limit. Twitter does not officially raise the character limit, but stops counting username in character limit.
