Twitter rolls out an update with 'Data Saver' mode for its app

To enable it, users would have to visit to the Twitter app settings and select the new Data Saver option. Unlike Facebook however, where you are required to download an entirely different app, Twitter users can access the data saver mode by going to settings, and flipping a switch. The Data Saver tool joins existing option for toggling auto-play video, and options to only view high quality video when connected to Wifi, but also adds in new Image quality tools that allow you to specify that you would like only lower resolution images. When turned on, the feature will disable autoplay for videos as well as will load image in lower quality. A Twitter spokesperson has confirmed that the feature is available on both iOS and Android platforms. However, if space is in short supply on your phone, the data saver feature should be more than enough to keep you happy. The good news is, if you use Twitter on your desktop, you can take advantage of the feature too. There are also improvements for VoiceOver support for polls.

Data saver is one of the most important features of the update. This update to the main app will make life easier for anyone with a patchy connection who lives elsewhere - including rural locations that are poorly served by the major mobile networks.

The most recent Twitter for iOS update, version 7.33, includes the data saver. This doesn't render Twitter Lite useless, of course. If you want to return to your normal Twitter functionality, slide the button back to the left. Unfortunately, tweeting from a computer isn't always convenient and Twitter Lite was designed for low-cost, low-bandwidth Android devices only.
