Twitter recently rolled out a new update for its Android app, which is apparently causing it to crash as soon as it boots up. Several users complained about the issue on the microblogging platform and soon after, the official Twitter Support account tweeted about the issue. The tweet reads, “We’re investigating a problem with the latest version of our Android app that causes it to crash immediately once it’s opened. If you use Twitter for Android, we suggest not updating it until we let you know it's fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience!” We suggest our readers to hold off on updating their Twitter app on Android to avoid the issue. 

Twitter Android app crash fix

In case you have already updated to the latest version and are facing the problem, here’s a way that might make the app work. The first way to try and fix the app, which worked for us, is to clear app data and cache. One can do this by heading over to their phone settings, navigating to the apps section and tapping on the Twitter app listing. Here, head over to storage and select the option to clear data and cache. Do note that you may need to login into the app again after removing data and cache. Try booting the app again and it might just work. Another way is to simply uninstall and reinstall the Twitter app. 

Let us know if the aforementioned methods helped you access the Twitter app in case it was crashing for you. In other Twitter news, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey rejected the possibility of a long-requested feature, which is an edit button for tweets. In a video Q&A with Wired, Dorsey said there won’t be an edit button for tweets. As per a previous report, Twitter believes that rolling out an edit button would mean user’s will not spend as much time thinking about what they tweet as they do now. There’s a real possibility that users will be slack in terms of what they tweet if an edit button is provided. You can read more about this here
