Twitter Lite was first introduced around eight months ago as a Progressive Web App, but it turned it into an Android application and published it on the Play Store for users in the Philippines back in September.

Since then we've seen an increase in engagement - for example, Tweets sent from Twitter Lite have increased more than 50%.

The app is created to run a more streamlined mobile version of Twitter, making it more accessible in countries where data plans and phone storage are costly and limited.
