In an attempt to bring a unified Twitter experience across its official mobile client and mobile website, Twitter has updated the mobile website for touchscreen devices. It now looks like the default Twitter app, featuring a tool bar on the top for checking tweets, direct messages, searching and your profile. This version of Twitter makes use of HTML5 and other web technologies to recreate the Twitter app experience. With functions such as pull and release to refresh included, there’s going to be no more reason for users to download the official client anymore (unless you really need the push notifications from Twitter).
The new mobile site is now rolling out for a small percentage of iPhone, iPod Touch and Android users, and will continue throughout the next few weeks. If you’re one of the lucky people to get the new mobile Twitter, let us know what you think. Head over to Twitter.com on your phone to check it out.
