Twitter is all set to lauch lite version of Twitter known as Twitter Lite for data-starved users.

Twitter aimed this version to be used largely at users outside the United States. Twitter Lite works through a web browser, not a stand-alone phone application, but its appearance and functionality are nearly identical to what app users experience.

This kind of lite versions has already been created by Facebook and Youtube. Twitter has 319 million average monthly active users while Facebook has 1.9 billion users.

Twitter's vice president of product Keith Coleman said, We didn't feel like we were reaching these other countries well enough, and this will allow us to do it faster, cheaper and with a better experience than we've had before. Also Twitter has made few changes in the mobile site, now users will see their average data consumption on the browser version go down 40%.
