Revamped Twitter mobile page takes on third party versions
Twitter's mobile page had left a lot to be desired. The result was an opportunity for third party developers to come in and offer versions of the a mobile Twitter site that outdid the official one. Feeling ashamed, the guys at Twitter started over again from scratch, using only Twitter API's The results can be gleaned at http://mobile.twitter.com as a preview. The new mobile Twitter site has been built for WebKit browsers such as Safari, Android, Nokia S60, and Palm webOS devices. Twitter says BlackBerry browsers will also work, but that the site has not yet been fine tuned for those handsets yet. The new mobile site will let you do while on the run, the things on Twitter that you do on your home PC. As the site becomes more and more ready for prime time, the new mobile site will start to replace the old one and this turnover will be done in phases. Sure, this is something that Twitter should have thought of before, but if not for this oversight, those third party developers wouldn't have had a site to offer and we all know what happens when developers get free time on their hands. So Twitter users, satisfied with the new mobile site? Anything missing?
