Today, we’re open sourcing both Twitter Kit and Digits for Android – the easiest way to bring real-time conversational content and powerful social identity to your apps.

Time flies. Just over six months ago, we released Twitter Kit for Android, our first mobile SDK, and we’ve been overjoyed by the response from the community. Apps like Regal Entertainment and Citymapper have lead the way in engaging their users with real-time Twitter content and apps like Buzzfeed are showing how simple and powerful phone-based signup can be with Digits. With Google I/O right around the corner, we’re excited to see the next wave of incredible apps that Android developers have been building.

We’ve long respected the Android community’s strong open source mindset and today, we’re excited to participate at a deeper level, by open sourcing both Twitter Kit and Digits under permissive licenses.

In our Twitter Kit repo on GitHub, you’ll have access to:

  • twitter
  • twitter-core
  • tweet-ui
  • tweet-composer

In our Digits repo on GitHub, you’ll have access to:

  • digits

We look forward to working with the Android community to continue improving Twitter Kit and Digits. This is just the beginning. Stay tuned for for additional open source news in the coming months.
