Nomming, although I'm wondering if this is related to 1003317 somehow.

ni? Harald, wonder if you will have further input on this? Thanks

Harald, for this to be actionable, we'd need a profile to help us pinpoint the source of the issue.  Here's the instructions for profiling:
Whiteboard: [tarako-exploratory], LMK [MemShrink] → [tarako-exploratory], LMK [MemShrink][c=memory p= s= u=]
Priority: -- → P1
Whiteboard: [tarako-exploratory], LMK [MemShrink][c=memory p= s= u=] → [tarako-exploratory], LMK [MemShrink][c=memory p= s= u=Tarako]
triage: twitter is a must have for tarako. 1.3T+
blocking-b2g: 1.3T? → 1.3T+
let's move this back to 1.3T?, partner has different feedback on Twitter
blocking-b2g: 1.3T+ → 1.3T?
needinfo/qawanted for profiling
Flags: needinfo?(nhirata.bugzilla)
Keywords: qawanted

The twitter app had LMK'ed while trying the profile was trying to stabilize it.  Not sure if I captured enough.
Flags: needinfo?(nhirata.bugzilla) → needinfo?(dhuseby)
Waiting for dnuseby's basic investigation here..we know twitter is a memory intensive website but if we can have some work around that may help.
triage: let's put this to backlog and continue the investigation without blocking tarako

We'll meet with Twitter today and will talk about Tarako and related bugs.
Flags: needinfo?(hkirschner)
We met with Twitter and found out that they have a low-res version of their mobile website. 

In order to test the low-res version of Twitter, you can use the user agent string below, provided by Twitter. Follow steps Harald explained in comment 80 in the bug #1007019 ( and use the string below for Twitter.
Harald tested this low-res Twitter app and monitored the memory usage, which is on average 11MB. It must be noted that the low-res version does not have a photo upload feature.
