Updating your device’s date and time settings on your iPhone or iPad:

Did you get an alert letting you know that your device’s time zone is set incorrectly? The device that you use for Twitter has its own date and time settings. If you’re having issues with the Twitter app on your iPhone or iPad, you may want to set your device’s date and time to update automatically.

To update the date and time settings on your iPhone or iPad:

  1. Go to your device’s Settings.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Tap Date & Time.
  4. Slide the switch next to Set Automatically, to turn on. 
Note: Check the App Store on your device periodically for any updates. Ensuring you have the latest version of Twitter installed on your device will also reduce your chance of seeing error messages
