Apparently some Android users that have updated the application this morning to its new version 8.28.0 (stable) have experienced these failures when starting the app after updating and have it reported to check if it was a failure of the user’s own smartphone or the problem, as is more likely, was linked to the new update.
Twitter is pronounced on the matter
Twitter has pronounced in this regard to maintain the calm among users, and has release that you are aware of the problem and that do not update the app until they get find out what was the failure causing the problems with the new updated version of your app.
Turn off automatic updates from the Play Store
If you don’t already have this latest version of Twitter installed, it is probably best to don’t update for the moment, so if you have activated the automatic updates of the applications in the Play Store you should disable Twitter temporarily to avoid making the application unusable for as long as the error persists.
To do this, head over to the app listing page in the Google store, then tap the three-dot menu in the upper right corner and deselect the element “enable automatic update«. With this we anticipate the error and we anticipate not having the app for perhaps the whole day.
However, if you are already in the updated version 8.28 you will have more complications to make it work again. Can wait for Twitter to fix the problemIt shouldn’t take too long, but if you need to use the app, go to the app’s settings and delete both the app’s data and cache. In this way the application should return to its initial state and work without problems. The last solution would be to uninstall the current updated application, and install an older version of it to solve the problem by reversing the update.
In any case, this specific failure should be solved quickly and without delay, so we will be waiting for Twitter to make the corresponding statement announcing the resolved problem.
