Twitter app on Google Pixel shows blank screen after recent update

It was only recently that Twitter’s “Copy to Clipboard” feature stopped working on the Android app.

We also highlighted an issue in the past when some Android users started experiencing issues with the tweet, retweet, quote retweet, and reply button.

Now the screen becomes unresponsive and goes blank the moment the Twitter app is opened.

Twitter app shows blank screen

Over the past few hours, many Twitter users (1, 2, 3, 4, 56, 7, 8) report an issue where their screen appears blank.

My app is not loading properly. When I open it the blank screen is attached and none of the buttons are responding either. I have already tried restarting, restarting and reinstalling. The web version works well.

Apparently the Twitter app doesn’t like Android 13 for some reason as it’s completely blank and unresponsive even after a reinstall.

The reports mostly come from various Google Pixel devices running the latest Android 13 operating system. For some reason, the issue only affects the Twitter app.

It is quite inconvenient for the users as Twitter works very well on the web browser. Even though the app shows the normal navigation buttons at the bottom, none of them are functional.

Affected users even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, but to no avail.

Official recognition

Fortunately, Twitter acknowledged the issue and said the team is working on a fix.

Potential Workaround

According to a concerned user, enabling notifications for the Twitter app seems to fix the problem.

If notifications were disabled, re-enable them, this solved the problem for me after trying everything without success. You can still turn off all individual notification categories while leaving the main toggle on.

For now, Android app users can try the workaround mentioned above or use the web version, which as mentioned earlier is unaffected. We will keep an eye on the issue and update the article accordingly.
