Twitter is one of the most popular social networks out there with millions of active users. If you are now using Twitter for iPhone, note that all photos, videos and other media files you browse through from your timeline get cached on your iPhone for further access. This may come in handy, as it allows users to quickly access their videos or photos they encounter while browsing the timeline. However, this also may put a lot of pressure on your iPhone’s storage.
Fortunately, Twitter includes built-in features that allow you to manage your storage, check how much storage the app is using and clear the app’s web caches to save some space on your iPhone.
In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the steps to clear Twitter’s web and media storage on your iPhone.
