Twitter’s mobile page has spent much of its life as a laggard, a weirdly clunky interface for a service that prides itself in future-fancy pep. Now when you visit Twitter.com from your mobile browser, you’re greeted with what amounts to a bizarro Twitter app: all the familiar icons are there, on the top of your screen instead of the bottom.
The mobile web app is fuelled by HTML5 and should be compatible with pretty much any mobile browser. It’s available today on a “small percentage” of iPhone, iPod touch and Android users, but will roll out more broadly over the next several weeks. [Twitter]
