You have successfully cleared your Twitter cache and freed up storage space.

While we are talking about ways to free up space on iPhone, there is also an option to offload unused apps on iPhone and iPad. However, this may not be the best option if you are low on memory. Unpacking the application does not delete its documents and data. This is a precautionary measure to ensure that you have enough storage space on your iPhone.

Clear your Twitter cache periodically!

If you are using an older iPhone with less storage, you should consider clearing cache not only from the Twitter app, but also from other apps that allow it. Once you do that, the apps will be a little slow for a while as it takes longer to download files, but you will have some extra space.

You may also want to consider upgrading to iCloud + for additional storage. None of these solutions is a long-term solution to your storage space issues. Over time, you will have to upgrade to a newer iPhone; This will help prevent lag and promote a smooth user experience.
