Your iPhone caches all content that you read on Twitter in the app. While this makes it easy to read old content, even when offline, it unfortunately takes up space on your iPhone by holding data in your Twitter cache.

You should delete your Twitter cache to save space on your phone, helping it operate more efficiently and freeing up space on your iPhone or Android.

Note that everytime you scroll through Twitter the cache will fill up again. For that reason, you should regularly empty your cache.Advertisement
