If you try, you're redirected to the legacy mobile version which is awful both functionally and aesthetically.
In addition to respecting your privacy, Nitter is on average around 15 times lighter than Twitter, and in most cases serves pages faster (eg. timelines load 2-4x faster).
In the future a simple account system will be added that lets you follow Twitter users, allowing you to have a clean chronological timeline without needing a Twitter account.
- All requests go through the backend, client never talks to Twitter
- Uses Twitter's unofficial API (no rate limits or developer account required)
- RSS feeds
- Mobile support (responsive design)
- AGPLv3 licensed, no proprietary instances permitted
An instance of Nitter will be presented here shortly.
