Troubleshooting an iPhone 11 Twitter app that keeps crashing
Random app crashes are usually emerging among other symptoms of minor in-app glitches and firmware crashes on the phone. Performing the following procedures will help you eliminate common factors from minor software errors to network connectivity issues on your iPhone. If you are seeing an error message before Twitter crashes, read and review the information as it often explains what went wrong and what needs to be done in order to fix the problem. Otherwise, start ruling out individual triggers.
First solution: Force close then restart the app.
In iOS devices, apps that you’ve recently opened will remain suspended and running in the background unless you end them. While keeping apps in this state benefits in terms of multitasking or switching between multiple applications, there’s a tendency for any of these apps to get rogue and stop working. To make sure this isn’t what happened to your phone’s Twitter application, follow these steps to force close background apps including Twitter:
- Swipe up from the bottom of the screen then stop when your finger reaches the middle and pause until the app cards/previews show up.
- In the app switcher, swipe sideways to find the Twitter app card/preview.
- Swipe up on the card preview to force close the app.
Repeat the same steps to end all other suspended applications to prevent any of them from interfering with Twitter the next time you launch it.
Second solution: Reboot your iPhone (soft reset).
Another simple solution to minor software issues inflicting trouble with online apps like Twitter is a soft reset. In iOS device, performing a soft reset is also a way of dumping all junk files that have been accumulated among other cached files on your phone’s internal memory. It turns out that doing so can also fix ransom system issues including app glitches. If you haven’t already, then you should consider soft reset the next potential solution to try. Just follow these steps:
- Press and hold both the Side and Volume Up buttons for a few seconds.
- Release both buttons when the Slide to Power off bar appears.
- Swipe or drag the bar to turn your device off.
- After about 30 seconds, press and hold the Side button and then release when the Apple logo appears.
Allow your phone to finish its boot sequence and then re-establish internet connection. Once it’s connected, reload Twitter and see if the random crashes have stopped.
Third solution: Refresh your internet connection to fix your iPhone 11 Twitter app that keeps crashing.
Random internet connectivity issues on your phone can also cause online apps to encounter issues and stop working. To make sure this isn’t inflicting conflicts to Twitter, refresh your iPhone’s internet connection. There are many ways to get this done and they are as follows:
Refreshing the internet using Wi-Fi toggle. This method utilizes the Wi-Fi toggle on your iPhone settings to restart Wi-Fi. Just follow these steps:
- Tap Settings from your Home screen.
- Select Wi-Fi.
- Tap the Wi-Fi switch to the OFF position.
- After about 30 seconds, tap the switch again to turn Wi-Fi back ON.
Refreshing the internet using the Airplane Mode trick. This is an old trick that’s been used by many iPhone owners to deal with random issues affecting wireless features of the phone. It works by giving a simultaneous restart on the phone’s wireless functions. Here’s how it’s done:
- From the Home screen, tap Settings.
- Select Airplane Mode.
- Toggle the Airplane Mode switch to turn the feature ON. Doing so disables your iPhone’s wireless radios and associated features like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
- While Airplane Mode is turned on, reboot or soft reset your iPhone to clear out network cache.
- After it reboots, go back to Settings-> Airplane Mode menu.
- Then toggle the Airplane Mode switch to turn it OFF again.
Wait for your iPhone to re-establish wireless signal and once the signal has stabilized, re-enable Wi-Fi to reconnect to your network and get back online.
You can open your browser first to check and see if you can already access websites and online resources. Once you’ve confirmed that your iPhone is connected, reload Twitter and see if the problem is gone.
Refreshing the internet with a network settings reset. This can help get rid of network-related errors that might have caused conflicts among online apps like Twitter. Be sure to note your Wi-Fi password beforehand since you will need to re-enter it to join and connect to the network after the reset. Just refer to these steps whenever you’re all set:
- Tap Settings from the Home screen.
- Scroll down to and select General.
- Tap Reset then select Reset network settings option.
- Enter your device passcode if prompted.
- Tap Reset network settings again to confirm.
When the reset is finished, your phone should restart on its own and then loads up the default network values. This denotes the need for you to set up and reconnect to your Wi-Fi network as new.
Fourth solution: Check manage app restrictions on your iPhone.
Another possible hindrance to apps is the iOS privacy feature called content and privacy restrictions. When enabled, it can prevent certain apps from loading up or running on your device. To make sure this isn’t interfering with Twitter’s normal operation, check and manage your iPhone’s restrictions settings with these steps:
- Go to the Home screen, tap Settings.
- Select Screen Time.
- Tap Content & Privacy Restrictions.
- If prompted, enter your Screen Time password to continue.
- Then toggle the switch next to Content & Privacy Restrictions to turn the feature OFF.
Retry loading up Twitter while the feature is disabled and see if that solves the problem. If Twitter stops crashing without activating restrictions on your phone, go back to settings and re-enable restrictions to maintain privacy and security on your device. At this point, you can lift restrictions for Twitter app by selecting the app under the Allowed Apps section.
Fifth solution: Install pending updates for Twitter and iOS.
App updates can also be the key to rectifying random app problems, especially those that are inflicted by in-app glitches and bugs. If you haven’t set your third-party app to auto-update, then you can manually check and install pending app updates including Twitter update with these steps:
- From the Home screen, tap on the App Store icon to open the application.
- Tap on Today tab at the bottom.
- Then tap on the user profile icon (Apple ID header) on the top right corner of the screen. You should see the account details.
- Scroll down to the Available Updates section.
- Tap on Update next to the Twitter app to install pending update for the app.
- If multiple app updates are available, tap on Update All to update all apps at once.
Reboot your iPhone when all apps are finished updating. This is necessary to ensure that all new software changes and app fixes are properly implemented.
Last resort: Uninstall then reinstall Twitter on your iPhone.
The app might have been totally corrupted and is no longer working. If this is the case, you will need to remove the corrupted version of the app then download and install the latest functional version of it. Here’s how:
- Go to the Home screen to get started.
- Scroll to and find the app that you’d like to reinstall. In this case, find the Twitter app icon.
- Tap and hold on the app icon for a few seconds. Keep holding the app icon when the pop-up menu appears and then release when the app icon starts to jiggle.
- Tap Delete from the warning message.
- Finally, tap Done on the top-right corner of the screen once you’re done deleting apps.
After uninstalling Twitter, restart or soft reset your iPhone to clear out memory cache and to refresh its system functions. As soon as it boots up completely, continue with these steps to download and install the latest version of Twitter app on your iPhone 11:
