How to fix Twitter crashing issue –
If you are still using the older version of the Twitter app, first you need to turn off the auto-update feature in the Google Play Store. For this, go to the Play Store app then head to Settings > Auto-Update Apps > Don’t Auto-Update Apps. You can enable this feature later, as it will stop other apps on your device to download the updates automatically.
Well, if you are already using the latest version of the app and still facing the crashing issue. You just need to clear the Twitter app’s cache memory. To do this, head to Settings > Apps > Twitter > Storage and cache > Clear Storage > Clear Cache. This will fix the crashing issue, but this also reset the app data and you will need to sign-up with your account again.
If you are still facing any issues or need any assistance with the steps mentioned above, let us know in the comments section below.
