How to Enable Twitter Data Saving

The Twitter app has a feature that reduces the use of mobile data on the phone. When you enable this option, the app loads lower quality images and prevents videos from running automatically, something useful for someone with a limited plan or slow connection. The function has been in existence for some time, but it needed to be configured individually. With a recent update to the app, the feature has been simplified and now comes down to just one button.

In the following tutorial, check out how to enable Twitter's data saving mode on your phone. The procedure was performed on an iPhone 8 with iOS 12, but the tips are also valid for Android users. You need to have the latest version of the app installed on your phone - check out how to update your apps.
