How to Clear Twitter Cache on iPhone and iPad
Smartphone apps store files to reference later. These files go into the app cache. That way they don’t have to be downloaded every time the app needs that file. This saves you time and data, meaning it’s a good thing.
The catch is that it takes up storage space on your iPhone or iPad. If you don’t clear it occasionally, it can fill up your storage and cause performance issues with your device. That’s why it helps to clear apps’ caches from time to time.
The Twitter app for iPhones and iPads feature a manual cache clearing feature built into the app. You can empty excessive data and caches stored in the app and free up more storage space.
This is a nice feature because iOS itself doesn’t include a way to manually clear caches, making it more difficult to delete an app’s data.
Before you proceed, you want to make sure your device has the latest version of Twitter installed. Do so by going to the App Store and selecting Updates tab then Update on the app.

Step 3: Tap on the gear icon and go to Settings in menu options.
