Social media is a large part of millions of people's lives, so when it stops working, it's normal to feel unsure or what to do. A lot of people typically turn to Twitter to share that a service is down. But what if Twitter is the site that has stopped working?
If Twitter has stopped working for you, there is a chance that the issue is the app on your Android handset. Here are several things to check on your smartphone to see if you can get the social network to start working again.
Check for app updates
First, launch the Twitter app on your handset and swipe in from the left side to access the navigation menu. Next, tap on Settings and privacy and choose Notifications . Here, you can customize your what types of notifications you get pushed to your phone, email, and SMS.
There’s also a chance that you accidentally muted notifications from Twitter on a system level. You can check if this is the problem by jumping into Settings> Apps & notifications> See all apps> Twitter (this might differ slightly from device to device). Here you can select the notifications option and make sure everything that you want is toggled on.
Bonus – Join Twitter's beta for Android
