Twitter has updated its mobile web app to better provide a high-quality and consistent Twitter experience on high-end touchscreen devices regardless of whether an official Twitter application is available.
“We want you to be able to access Twitter no matter where you are,” Twitter revealed on the company’s official blog. No matter what device you use or whether primarily access Twitter through a mobile application or the browser, today’s refresh will be noticeable to those engaged with Twitter.
Now boasting more than 200 million users worldwide tweeting some 155 million times a day, the improvement certainly portends favorably for the microblogging platform’s continued growth.
We are releasing this application today to a small percentage of users on iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android smartphones, and we’ll be rolling it out to additional folks with those devices in the coming weeks.
The company says users can still use Twitter on their phone’s browser by going to twitter.com. If you’re yet to gain access to the new web app, you can still use the existing version of twitter.com for mobile browsers.
