Microsoft has temporary fix to keep Twitter from draining Windows Phone data

With most plans, you get a limited amount of data. That’s not a good thing if you have a Windows Phone with a Twitter app. It drains the data like made. Microsoft has a temporary fix in place.

Microsoft has confirmed that there’s an issue with its built-in Twitter feature that could result in unexpected data usage. The issue stems from a Twitter back-end change that has caused Windows Phones to re-download the profile images for Twitter contacts frequently. Twitter is currently transitioning its profile pictures from one server to another, and The Verge discovered the data use problem nearly a week ago and reported it to the software giant.
