I updated my Nexus 5 to the official Android L factory image yesterday, and Twitter was working fine for a while after that. Now, however, the app won't load any images at all--no tweet images, no profile pictures, nothing. If I tap an image I get an icon like I'm disconnected and it can't load.

I've tried clearing the data and force stopping the app, then uninstalling it entirely, but neither approach worked.

How can I get the app to show pictures again?

    This sounds obvious, but do other internet apps work normally? What kind of internet connection is it?

  • All of my other apps work as expected. I tried both over wifi and my cellular connection, same problem both ways.

  • Yes, the webpage works as expected through Chrome on my phone.

It turns out that the Twitter app uses data stored at /sdcard/Android/data/com.twitter.android. I deleted that directory and reinstalled the app and everything works now.


I had the same problem, turned out my Nand flash storage was full. Deleted one file and restarted twitter, all working.
