Twitter ranks among the most popular social networks out there. The service allows you to send and receive short messages called tweets on your mobile devices and desktop. Like any other app, the Twitter app on iOS saves everything you come across every day. This practice has been around for a while and it helps your videos or photos load faster the next time you want to view them.
However, keep in mind that you see tons of things every day, and things tend to grow in size and take up a large amount of your iPhone’s storage space, thus slowing down the performance. Therefore, it’s a good idea to clean up the mess. Fortunately, Twitter includes a built-in tool that lets you remove caches and data stored within the app on your iPhone and iPad.
