Twitter Adds Ability to Clear Cache

Apps like Twitter, Facebook, and other social networks often take up way too much space because they are constantly caching posts. To fix this, often times you would have to delete and reinstall the app. However, Twitter has added the ability to clear the cache in-app. It's currently being rolled out, but it appears in a menu called "Web Storage." While it's great Twitter has added this, it worries me that companies will get into the habit of having the user habitually clear the cache, when the app should honestly be managing its own storage better. There's no reason Twitter should ever take up more than half a gigabyte. Hopefully, someone will eventually break the trend.
