Firefly tool of the month: Twitter Lite

I’m sure we’ve all been there before: attending a packed event or conference where the Wi-Fi clogs up or the data connection slows down from multiple devices. When this happens, you’re out of luck if you need to tweet on behalf of your company or want to get involved in a fast-moving online discussion!

To end this plight, Twitter has recently launched Twitter Lite, a faster and more data-friendly way of using Twitter for those of us dealing with less-than-stellar connectivity. Like regular Twitter, you’ll get all the breaking news, the ability to interact with different accounts and share updates – but within a simpler interface that requires less of your Wi-Fi connection or data plan.

You can get instant access to Twitter Lite via the web client, which works just like the regular app: you won’t miss out on push notifications, offline access or safe browsing. And at under 1MB to load, you’ll no longer be at the mercy of bad connectivity!

That corner has since […] ...Read more
