Those who frequently use Twitter on the go now have the chance to turn on a new feature called 'Twitter Lite.'

This new feature can be switched on through one's setting panel to offer a viewing experience that minimizes the usage of data. As such, Twitter Lite is optimized for use on slow connections, unreliable networks and even boasts some offline features. One of the most noticeable traits of using Twitter Lite is that users will see photos in their timeline blurred with the option to "load image" if more than a preview is desired.

Considering that data consumption is a big concern among smartphone users, this new feature will help avid Twitter users cut down on their day-to-day data usage and perhaps even lower some of the costs on their monthly mobile bills.
