Refined Twitter is a free Chrome Extension to open mobile web version of Twitter on desktop. This Chrome extension always forces mobile version of Twitter to open whenever you open on your PC. Opening a mobile web version makes it faster to load than the typical web version for desktop. This being a lite version has a very simple layout, making it easier to use. Its just like using Twitter on Twitter app for smartphones.

Refined Twitter is the web version of Anatine: a free Twitter client for desktop. Unlike Anatine, Refined Twitter has a tab for your profile on the home screen. And, there is a logout option available in Refined Twitter unlike Anatine. It also gives you real time desktop notifications of your Twitter account.refined twitter_home
