    "One of the biggest priorities for mobile app marketers is to reach the people who are most likely to use and love their apps," Twitter product manager Deepak Rao said in a blog post yesterday.

    "With installed app category targeting, you can identify new audiences of high-quality users to target within your existing app category and in related app categories." The new tool can be combined with other ad-targeting approaches such as using keywords, languages or locations.

    The social network late last year introduced the capability to note what apps are installed on smartphones or tablets, saying the information would help personalise Twitter feeds, promoted content, and recommendations regarding accounts to follow.

    Twitter did not rule out using the information for advertising and said that it gathered no data from inside applications. Twitter has been working to ramp up revenue and win more users amid investors worries about its profitability and ability to grow.
