Twitter Lite

A faster, data-friendly way to see what’s happening in the world right now

Get breaking news, sports scores, and entertainment updates; interact with brands and your government; easily market your business; or quickly provide customer service, all while using less of your data plan.


Instant access to Twitter:

  • Accessible via the web — Because Twitter Lite is on the mobile web, it works on most smartphones and tablets without an App Store or Google Play account. You won’t need an email account or credit card either.


Fast to install, space- and data-friendly:

  • Quick and light — At under 1MB, Twitter Lite loads quickly (even over poor networks) and takes up less space on your phone.
  • Automatic updates — Twitter Lite automatically updates to the latest version.
  • Control your data — Turn on data saver mode to use even less data by downloading only the images or videos you want to see.


It works just like the App:

  • One-tap access from your home screen — Add Twitter Lite to your home screen to access it at any time with one tap.
  • Push Notifications — Push Notifications keep you informed whether or not Twitter Lite is open.
  • Offline access — Keep reading loaded content even if your network cuts out.
  • Safe browsing — Safe web browsing gives you privacy and peace of mind.

See more of what’s happening even with unreliable networks, expensive data plans, or limited device space. Try it now at
