Twitter Begins to Roll Out Redesigned Mobile Web App

From the Official Announcement: “A better app for your mobile browser”

This web app allows us to provide a high-quality and consistent Twitter experience on high-end touchscreen devices – whether or not an official Twitter application is available. It was built from the ground up for smartphones and tablets, which have more advanced browsers that support the latest web technologies, including HTML5.


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. You can use Twitter on your phone’s browser by going to twitter.com. If you don’t yet have access to the new web app, you’ll still be able to use the existing version of twitter.com for mobile browsers.
