Excessive data usage from Twitter in the People Hub has been fixed


Several weeks ago we wrote about a problem that was causing excessive data usage on some devices. The issue was being caused by the Twitter integration in the People Hub on some Windows Phone 8 devices. Twitter recently changed where they store profile photos, and this was causing the app to constantly search for them.

Needless to say this constant searching was using a lot of data on some devices. Some users reported up to 530MB of data use just from the People Hub. The good news is that Microsoft has finally issued a temporary fix. As of November 10th the issue has been resolved and you can add Twitter back to the People Hub if you removed it. Thankfully Microsoft was quick to fix this. We love the People Hub.
