Twitter Says It'll Refresh The Mobile Experience [mobilized.allthingsd.com]
After spending much of the last year working to improve overall reliability, Twitter’s vice president of engineering says the company intends to put a lot of effort in the coming months on improving its mobile experience.

“Mobile is a huge priority for us,” Michael Abbott said, speaking at the VentureBeat Mobile Summit in Sausalito, Calif.


Although some of that work is around the mobile Web, much of it is around native apps for various smartphones and creating a more unified experience from device to device. Abbott said that the company sees a lot of promise for HTML5 down the road, but says native applications remain critically important. There are certain things that require an app, Abbot said, such as sending notifications or tying directly into a phone’s camera.

“We just can’t quite get there with HTML5 yet,” Abbott said, noting that he is a big proponent of HTML5, having focused on that in his prior work developing the WebOS at Palm.
