2. Use Twitter Lite

If you are using Twitter on a year-old phone, with not so impressive specs. Then I’ll recommend you to use the Twitter Lite app. This app is just 1.1MB in size and comes with more or fewer features like Messages, Explore, and even Dark Mode (except the recently introduced Fleets). The Lite app is optimized for 2G and 3G network, it also comes with Data Saver as well.
