Twitter intros new interface optimized for mobile phones

updated 03:45 pm EST, Thu December 10, 2009

Website supports iPhone, Android browsers

Twitter has introduced a mobile interface optimized for Android, iPhone, webOS and Nokia S60 browsers. mobile.twitter.comhas been built from scratch using only the Twitter API, and still contains many of the features found on the regular website. The new interface includes Reply, Retweet and Favourite buttons, as well as the ability to see Mentions and Direct Messages. It displays updates, followers and popular trending topics, with supplemental functions such as a search box and an option to remove images.

The company eventually intends to have the new mobile site replace the existing m.twitter.com. The code is still under development, and while it is fully functional for some phones, it does not work as well with some, such as RIM's BlackBerries. Dedicated Twitter apps are normally used to circumvent such problems.
