Twitter Makes Switch to Google AMP

Twitter has officially shifted to Google's AMP format on its mobile app for both iOS and Android, eliminating the platform's previous, slower mobile viewing pages.

At the Google I/O conference in May 2017, representatives announced that Google AMP pages load twice as fast as traditional links from Google search. It was also during that conference when Twitter officials announced that they planned to make the switch to AMP for their native app. Now that the rollout is underway, publishers are already experiencing the boost.


Relay Media, a strictly AMP-based platform, reports that since the switch to AMP, sessions have spiked from 4% in December 2016 to 20% in June 2017. They also found that since the shift to AMP, 10–15% of their AMP visits are not sourced from Google search, but rather from platforms like Twitter.

The dramatic shift to a faster-loading experience means that publishers who aren't publishing on AMP are missing out on vital traffic. If your brand or media company can't iterate on AMP pages to learn how to effectively send traffic to your full site, you are increasingly crippled.
