Twitter users with older mobile browsers and feature phones will have an experience that’s more like what smartphone and Twitter.com users are familiar with.
The company has overhauled mobile.twitter.com with a new look and feel that’s in line with other Twitter experiences — no matter if the user is on a small, 240×240 screen or something much larger. The end result, Twitter says, is an entirely new and faster mobile site. The new mobile site, from a coding perspective, is up to 63 percent smaller than before.
Here’s a look at the before and after versions of mobile.twitter.com, as posted on Twitter’s announcement.
The project took about nine weeks. If you’re into user interface and/or development/programming issues, you’ll find a lot more detail about the various challenges Twitter faced on the Twitter blog.
