This process will also dump cache and corrupted files from your iOS memory, refreshing your phone’s operating system. Then launch Twitter to see if it is no longer crashing.

Third solution: Refresh your phone’s internet connection

We have known for a fact that Twitter will not work as intended when your internet is slow or you have no connection at all. Thus, network-related errors caused by minor bugs can be rectified by refreshing your phone’s internet connection. Here is how it’s done:

  1. From the Home screen, go to Settings.
  2. Select Wi-Fi menu.
  3. Toggle the Wi-Fi switch to disable the feature for a few seconds, then tap the switch again to turn it back on.

Another way of refreshing your phone’s wireless network services like Wi-Fi is to enable and disable the Airplane Mode feature. This simple trick is proven to fix multiple phone issues including post-update symptoms like crashing apps problem. Follow these steps to get started:

  1. From the Home screen, go to Settings.
  2. Select Airplane Mode menu.
  3. Toggle the Airplane Mode switch to turn it on. This will automatically disable all your wireless services.

  5. Then head back to Settings->Airplane Mode menu and toggle the switch to turn the feature off again. Doing so will then restore your phone’s wireless radios including Wi-Fi.

Re-establish your phone’s internet connection then launch the Twitter app again. 

Fourth solution: Update iOS Twitter app

The Twitter app won’t be able to cope up with your phone’s new system if the app is out-dated. Aside from that, out-dated apps are prone to crashing problem as they are yet attuned to the latest iOS installed. To rule this out, it is recommended to check for and install pending apps updates on your iPhone XR including Twitter. Here are the steps:

  1. From the Home screen, open the App Store.
  2. Select your Apple ID (Profile icon) located at the upper-right corner of your screen.
  3. To view the list of pending apps updates, select Pending updates section. If you don’t see this section, this indicates that there are no pending apps updates available to install.
  4. Otherwise, search for Twitter app then tap the Update button next to it.
  5. Tap Update All button if you wish to install all pending apps updates available. Scroll to Updated Recently section to view the recently installed updates.

Make it a habit to always reboot (soft reset) your phone every after making changes. This is to ensure recently changes made are properly applied. Cache files which may have caused the conflict are likewise eliminated after the process.

Fifth solution: Reset network settings to fix iOS 13 Twitter crashing on iPhone XR

Customized network settings can get obliterated after an iOS update. This is because the recent iOS system settings may easily override the altered values and options and eventually trigger the conflict. Thus, deleting the current network settings and restoring them to default values and options is deemed to correct the problem. This reset won’t result in data loss, so better give it a try. To do so, here are the steps:

  1. From the Home screen, go to Settings.
  2. Select General.
  3. Scroll down to and tap on Reset.
  4. Then select Reset network settings from the options.
  5. If prompted, enter your device passcode to continue.
  6. Then select the option to confirm network settings reset.

Your iPhone XR will reboot by itself after the reset. Once it is back on, re-enable the features that you are going to use including Wi-Fi. Then enter your Wi-Fi password to reconnect. If this method didn’t provide positive result and Twitter still keeps crashing, check out the next solution.

Sixth solution: Uninstall then reinstall Twitter app

The crashing problem can be persistent if the app has become completely corrupted. If this erratic app can’t be rectified by any of the previous solutions, remove the app from your phone and then reinstall. By that, its cache and corrupted files will be dumped out. To remove Twitter app through your phone’ settings menu, follow these steps:

  1. From the Home screen, go to Settings.
  2. Select General and tap on iPhone Storage to show the list of installed apps.
  3. Then select Twitter.
  4. Tap the Delete App option.
  5. Then tap on Delete when prompted to confirm the deletion of the Twitter app.
  6. Reboot (soft reset) your iPhone XR after Twitter has been deleted.
  7. Then head to the App Store and search for the latest version of the Twitter app to install. Simply follow the onscreen instructions to download and install the app.

Soft reset your phone again after the installation. Then launch Twitter app to see if the crashing issue is now fixed.
