In this post, we will show you what to do if Twitter crashes on Pixel 4a after updating to Android 11. There are four troubleshooting procedures you can use in this guide. Try to find out which one works for you. You may only have to do one or a couple of procedures to make Twitter work again. Continue reading to learn more. 

Applications, even if they’re popular and well-maintained, tend to crash every now and then, and it seems like some Pixel 4a owners are bugged by it. The app in question is Twitter, which started to close on its own after the Android 11 update. 

It’s probably just a minor issue but if you’re one of the users with this problem, you need to troubleshoot your device, and here’s what you should do:

First solution: Close Twitter and open again

It’s probably just a temporary issue with the app. So the first thing you need to do is close Twitter and then open it again. In doing so, you’re actually refreshing the app’s cache.  

  1. To do so, swipe up from the bottom of the screen and stop at the middle to view apps you recently used. 
  2. Swipe up on Twitter to close it. If you want, you may also close other apps. 

After doing that, launch Twitter and see if the problem is fixed. 

Second solution: Force Restart your Pixel

If the first solution fails to fix the problem, the next thing you need to do is refresh your phone’s memory and reload all core services. You can do so by doing the Forced Restart, or simulated battery pull. Such a method has already been proven to be very effective in fixing any kind of software problem.

It’s also possible that the crashes are just due to some minor system glitches. Here’s what you need to do: 

  1. Press and hold the Power key for 8 seconds. This will trigger your phone to shut down and power back up. 
  2. Once the Google logo shows, release the Power key and wait until the device finishes the reboot. 

After the reboot, launch Twitter and see if the problem is fixed. 

Third solution: Clear the cache and data of the app

Another effective solution to app crashes is resetting the app in question. That’s what you need to do if the first two solutions failed to fix the problem, and you don’t have to worry as none of your files or messages will be deleted. Here’s how it’s done: 

  1. Pull the app drawer up and look for Twitter. 
  2. Tap and hold on its icon, and then tap App Info. 
  3. Tap Storage and cache. 
  4. Tap Clear cache. 
  5. Tap Clear storage and confirm it. 

After resetting the app, launch Twitter again and see if the problem is fixed. 

Fourth solution: Uninstall and reinstall Twitter

If the first three solutions failed, then you have no other choice but to remove the app from your phone. This will make sure all possibly corrupted installation files are deleted. After that, download and install a fresh copy to make sure you’re using the latest version. Here’s how: 

  1. Pull the app drawer up and look for Twitter. 
  2. Tap and hold on its icon, and then tap App Info. 
  3. Tap Uninstall and touch OK to confirm. 
  4. Once the app is successfully uninstalled, launch the Play Store.
  5. Search for Twitter, and then tap Install. Now wait until the installation is finished. 

When it comes to fixing app crashes, this is all you need to do. However, if for some reason the app continues to crash after this, then you have no other choice but to do the next solution.

Fifth solution: Factory reset your Pixel 4a

After doing the previous solutions and Twitter is still crashing, then it’s probably an issue with the firmware. Most of the time, it’s not just Twitter that keeps crashing, but there are other apps that also crash when opened. 

At this point, you have to do the factory reset to fix the problem. However, make sure to create a backup of your important files as they will be deleted. When ready, follow these steps to reset your Pixel 4a: 

  1. Open your phone’s Settings app.
  2. Tap System.
  3. Tap Advanced. 
  4. Tap Reset options, and then tap Erase all data.
  5. Tap Erase all data at the bottom right corner of the screen. If needed, enter your PIN, pattern, or password.
  6. To erase all data from your phone’s internal storage, tap Erase all data.

After the reset, set up your phone as a new device. Twitter should be working properly after you install it. 

And that’s what you need to do if Twitter crashes on Pixel 4a after the Android 11 update. We hope that this simple troubleshooting guide can help you one way or the other.
