Save Disk Space By Removing Twitter Cache Images

Hey,

I was having a dig through my hard drive to try and reclaim some space and stumbled across something that was a space hog. The twitter app (my profile is here) cache for profile images. Although a tool such as CleanMyMac, which I use regularly use, cleans up caches this is one that it missed. This cache had nearly 2Gb’s of profile images which took up a significant chuck of disk space. This is a quick guide on how to find this folder and delete the files.

To find this folder you need to do a little digging. Within Finder select Go > Go To Folder from the menu bar. Then enter the following string.

~/Library/Containers/com.twitter.twitter-mac/Data/Library/Caches/com.atebits.tweetie.profile-images

This folder can get quite large so you need to keep a grip on it.

It is a deep folder within the depths of your Mac. You you Get Info (Command + I) you will find the size of this folder. If it is too large for your tastes. Select all of the files with Command + A and then send them to the trash. You may need to enter your password to proceed.

You will now reclaim some space when you empty your trash. This could be a significant saving.
