Fixing Twitter has stopped error on Galaxy S10e

If a popular app like Twitter crashes when opened, the problem could be just a temporary one but you may still need to perform some basic troubleshooting procedures to fix it. With that said, here are the things I suggest you do about the Twitter has stopped error…

First solution: Force restart your Galaxy S10e

When troubleshooting a possible app-problem, it’s always recommended to begin the process with forced restart. It’s a simulated battery removal which will refresh your phone’s memory as well as reload all its apps and services. It is a very effective solution against problems like this and here’s how it’s done on your Galaxy S10e:

  1. Press and hold the Volume Down button and don’t release it yet.
  2. While holding down the volume button, press and hold the Power key as well.
  3. Keep both keys held down together for 15 seconds or until the Galaxy S10e logo shows on the screen.

Once the phone has successfully rebooted, open the app and see if the Twitter has stopped error still shows up. If it still does, then move on to the next solution.

Second solution: Delete Twitter’s cache

It is always possible that the cause of this problem is a corrupt cache. All apps have their own cache to help them run smoothly but there are times when these files get corrupted. In fact, it’s the most common reason why problems like this happen. But don’t worry, as you can always fix it by doing the following:

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to pull the notification panel down.
  2. Tap the Settings icon on the upper-right corner.
  3. Scroll to and then tap Apps.
  4. Find and tap Twitter.
  5. Tap Storage.
  6. Touch Clear cache.

After doing this procedure, open Twitter again and see if the Twitter has stopped error still pops up. If it does, then it’s time to reset the app.

Third solution: Reset Twitter

A reset means to delete the app’s data files. These files contain the settings and user preferences. When deleted, the system will create new ones but the app will be brought back to its default settings. If this is just an issue with the Twitter app, then this procedure should fix it.

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to pull the notification panel down.
  2. Tap the Settings icon on the upper-right corner.
  3. Scroll to and then tap Apps.
  4. Find and tap Twitter.
  5. Tap Storage.
  6. Touch Clear data and then tap OK to confirm.
  7. Reboot your phone.

After this, open the app and see if the Twitter has stopped error still shows up. If it still does, it’s time to remove it from your phone.

Fourth solution: Uninstall Twitter and install it back

There are times when a problem like this occurs due to compatibility issues but instead of just updating the app, it’s best to be thorough enough. So, you have to remove the Twitter app from your phone first to also remove all its associations with the firmware and other apps. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to pull the notification panel down.
  2. Tap the Settings icon on the upper-right corner.
  3. Scroll to and then tap Apps.
  4. Find and tap Twitter.
  5. Tap Storage.
  6. Touch Clear data and tap OK to confirm.
  7. Tap the back key once and then touch Uninstall.
  8. Confirm that you want to remove the app from your phone.

After that, reinstall the app to make sure you have the latest version.

  1. From the home screen, pull up the app drawer.
  2. Find and tap Play store.
  3. In the search field, type ‘twitter’.
  4. Tap Twitter and touch Install.
  5. After the installation, open Twitter.

Most of the time, this method is effective enough to fix problems like this. However, if for some reason the Twitter has stopped error continues to show, then you have no other choice but to reset your phone.

Fifth solution: Backup important files and reset your phone

If you reach this point, then you have no other choice but to reset your phone. This procedure will fix any software-related problems including app crashes. However, before anything else, make sure to create a backup of your important files and data as they will be deleted. After the backup, remove both your Google and Samsung accounts so that you won’t be locked out of your device.

  1. Turn off the device.
  2. Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby key, then press and hold the Power key.
  3. When the Galaxy S10+ logo shows, release all three keys.
  4. Your Galaxy S10 Plus will continue to boot up into the Recovery Mode. Once you see a black screen with blue and yellow texts, proceed to the next step.
  5. Press the Volume down key several times to highlight ‘wipe data / factory reset’.
  6. Press Power button to select.
  7. Press the Volume down key until ‘Yes’ is highlighted.
  8. Press Power button to select and start the master reset.
  9. When the master reset is complete, ‘Reboot system now’ is highlighted.
  10. Press the Power key to restart the device.
