Twitter said the new mobile site will work best with mobile phones that support Webkit browsers such as Android, the iPhone, Nokia S60, and Palm OS, but it will also support others.
New features include the ability to see @replies, favourite tweets, and direct messages, all from a menu at the top of the page.
Users can also see pictures of users next to their tweets, but this can be turned off for slow connections. There is also a list of trending topics at the bottom of the page.
