Popular social networking site, Twitter has now launched an alpha testing program for Twitter app for Android, after launching a beta program, in August. With the initiation of the program, Twitter is reportedly soliciting Android users to provide feedback on the microblogging site's mobile app in a bid to make it better.
The company had already started a beta testing program in August for users to sample early versions of the app. However, the new alpha testing program would be offering some users an early look at the changes to the app.
Mashable said that the program will let users to provide feedback, analysis, suggestions and comments to Twitter through an online forum.
The Alpha Program that will bring in a direct user feedback to the app will be filled on a first come, first serve basis, beginning with those who are already part of the Android Experiment Program. Twitter will restrict the number of people that can be the part of the group.
After joining the group, users will get a link to join the program, following which, they'll get access to alpha releases through the Play Store.
Reportedly, Twitter explained in its post saying that the version of the app in the Alpha Program contain more and earlier iterations of experiments and, as a result, could be less stable than the releases in the Android Experiment Program.
Social network, Facebook, had also announced a beta and then an alpha testing program for interested users recently.
