How to Delete Twitter's Cache on iPhone


Twitter, a social media more than instant messaging, is about discovering interesting people around the world. Through Twitter, we can learn what’s happening in the world and what people are talking about right now.

As an App, Twitter also will leave a large amount of data on your iPhone. As far as we know, Twitter for iPhone and iPad has manual cache clearing features built into the app, which offers a way to forcibly dump excessive caches and data stored within the application in iOS, thereby freeing up some storage. This is particularly nice because iOS does not offer a way to manually clear caches from an iPhone or iPad. It is a really good way instead of deleting the app and re-download it. So follow this guide to learn how to delete Twitter's cache on iPhone.
