Want To Get Access To Experimental Versions Of The Twitter For Android App?

Want To Get Access To Experimental Versions Of The Twitter For Android App?

A recent post on Twitter’s Help Center reveals that Twitter is recruiting Twitter for Android users to help test “confidential, yet to be released products or features” for the app.

As Mashable reports, Twitter launched a beta testing program in August for Android users to sample the app, and has added to that with a new alpha testing group that will let users access even earlier versions of Twitter for Android.

Users will “provide feedback and comments to Twitter through an online forum regarding use of such applications.”

According to Mashable’s research, the alpha program will first be filled with people already participating in the Android experiment program, but it’s unclear how many people beyond that Twitter will accept.

It’s a smart move on Twitter’s part to test new app features and functionality with a live sampling group, but will the risks (leaking of secret new features, for one) outweigh the reward?
