Back in December, Twitter introduced a new look for the mobile side of their site, http://mobile.twitter.com. Yesterday, they announced that they are rolling out this same experience for users of low bandwidth networks and older browsers. The advantage, of course, is that the incredibly popular social network is now more accessible than ever.
In this updated version of mobile.twitter.com, you can see all the Tweets from the accounts you follow in the Home tab and check your @mentions in the Connect tab. You can see what’s trending in the Discover tab, and access your direct messages and Tweets in the Me tab.
The great advantage this offers to users is that the new iteration uses one-third less bandwidth and is fast, similar to the iPhone and Android native apps. They are rolling out this new mobile web experience now, and promise tol continue to make Twitter the most accessible way to connect with the world, even with the weakest signals and the simplest devices.
