You Can Now Clear Out Wasted Storage in the Twitter iPhone App

iPhone: Twitter has rolled out an update for the official Twitter app that solves the pesky problem of app bloating. Now, you can manually clear out the cache in the app.

A lot of apps on iOS have a problem where they bloat up in size over use, which can cause issues with those of us with 16GB phones. The best workaround I’ve found for this involves downloading a giant app to force iOS to clear the…

Denny’s tweets pretty clever, internet-approved ‘zoom in on the nose’ meme

Brands, especially fast food brands, are usually pretty terrible at using pop culture references to sell their product. Any time they try to use a meme, it just comes off as sad and derivative.

But every once in a while, we see a brand apply a meme so effectively that we just have to give them the respect that they are due.

Denny’s has earned this distinction for a tweet that they shared on Wednesday. It uses the “zoom in on the nose” meme everyone has been obsessing over so accurately and so hilariously that it got over…

Remains of the Day: Twitter Will Now Let You Mute All Eggs

In a continuing effort to crack down on abusive users and harassment on the site, Twitter will now let you mute all users who don’t have avatars, i.e., the eggs. That and more in today’s news.

Twitter can’t get over this English cricketer who was sold for $2 million at the IPL auctions

The Indian Premier League (IPL) auctions were held in Bangalore on Monday. For the uninitiated, IPL is a Twenty20 cricket tournament held in India in April-May and draws players from across the globe in a month-long extravaganza.

This is its tenth year and the English Premier League replica is now one of the richest and buzziest sporting events of the world.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter couldn’t hold its own while the auctions happened.

Besides ensuring…

This meme is the perfect reaction GIF to throw some shade on Twitter

Giant bomb

Salty reaction GIFs have a special home on Twitter. Sometimes they just work better than anything you can write in 140 characters.

Though a GIF of Giant Bomb’s video producer and podcaster Drew Scanlon has existed in the gaming community for quite some time, it has only received wide-spread internet notoriety in the last few weeks, which is fortunate, because it deserves the internet’s admiration.

As noted by the internet meme database…

The Queen Wants to Pay You to Tweet on Her Behalf

Between all her royal waving and Corgi-walking, one could hardly expect that Queen Elizabeth II—who just made history as she celebrated her 65th year on Britain’s throne—has the time to fire off a 140-character commentary on her day to the 2.77 million people who follow her @RoyalFamily on Twitter. Though she did hit “send” on the account’s first tweet back in late 2014, then typed out a personal message of thanks for all the well-wishes on her 90th birthday, the Head of the Commonwealth is in need of some social media help. Which is where you could come in.

The Evening Standard reports that the Royal Household is looking for a Digital Communications Officer to…

New Twitter Features Aim to Stop Harassment

Twitter’s abuse problems are notorious. Its reputation as a haven for people who want to use the platform to harass others is so bad that British members of parliament proposed fining the platform (and others) almost $2.5 million if it doesn’t take reasonable measures to curb the kind of misuse that has played a major role in events like GamerGate and the 2016 election. Now, the tech company is finally taking action against its hordes of trolls.

Today, February 7, Twitter announced changes that would make it easier to weed out problematic accounts and tweets, both from individual timelines and the site as a whole. First, it will make it harder for users…
