10 Solutions for Twitter Not Loading in Safari on iPhone, iPad, and Mac

Twitter, now known as X, remains one of the most popular social media platforms despite its recent rebranding. With feature-rich mobile apps and a web version, Twitter allows users to browse their feed and stay updated on the latest trends. However, many users have reported issues with Twitter not loading properly on Safari. If you're facing the same problem, here are ten solutions to fix Twitter not loading in Safari on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

1. Reload the Webpage

If Twitter is not loading in Safari, it could be due to a weak internet connection. Try reloading the Twitter homepage by clicking the refresh icon in the Safari address bar. This simple step can often resolve the issue.

2. Try Private Window

Switching to a private window in Safari can help troubleshoot Twitter loading problems. Open a private window and sign in to your Twitter account again to see if the issue persists.

3. Clear Browsing Data

Clearing your Safari cache can solve many issues, including problems with Twitter. Follow these steps to clear Twitter data on Safari:


  1. Open Safari and click on “Settings” in the menu bar.
  2. Go to the “Privacy” tab and select “Manage Website Data.”
  3. Search for “Twitter” and click “Remove All.”


  1. Open your iPhone's Settings and scroll to “Safari.”
  2. Select “Clear History and Website Data.”

4. Remove Safari Extensions

Sometimes, Safari extensions can interfere with Twitter loading properly. Remove unnecessary extensions by following these steps:


  1. Go to Safari Settings.
  2. Select “Extensions” and click “Uninstall” for each extension.


  1. Open Safari Settings on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Select “Extensions” and disable unnecessary extensions.

5. Disable iCloud Private Relay

If you're using iCloud Private Relay, it may cause issues with Twitter on Safari. Disable Private Relay by following these steps:


  1. Click the Apple icon and open “System Settings.”
  2. Select your account and go to “iCloud.”
  3. Click “Private Relay” and disable it.


  1. Open Settings and go to your profile.
  2. Select “iCloud” and open “Private Relay.”
  3. Disable the option.

6. Turn off VPN

If you have an active VPN connection on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad, it may be causing problems with Twitter in Safari. Disable your VPN network and try loading Twitter again.

7. Check Twitter Status

Sometimes, Twitter servers may be down, causing issues with loading on Safari. Visit Downdetector and search for Twitter to check if there are any server-side issues. If so, you'll need to wait for Twitter to resolve them.

8. Update System OS

Ensure you have the latest software version installed, as Apple frequently updates Safari with system builds. Update your system OS to the latest version to resolve any compatibility issues.

9. Try Another Browser

If Safari continues to give you trouble with Twitter, consider trying alternative browsers such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Firefox. You can export your Safari history and bookmarks, and many extensions are available on these rival browsers.

10. Your Account Is Restricted

If you've violated Twitter guidelines or haven't followed them, your account may be restricted. Twitter bans usually last for 48 hours to a week. During this time, basic actions on your account will be limited. You'll need to wait for the account restriction to be lifted.

With these solutions, you should be able to get back to your Twitter feed without any loading issues. Although Twitter has discontinued support for third-party apps, the official website remains the primary platform for accessing Twitter.
