I've seen a lot of newer phones coming without twitter & facebook. Its not that the normies don't want those apps its that firstly the apps are so bloated and intrusive the battery savings are easy to see so manufacturers and carriers are happy to omit them and both Google & Apple want to make sure you use their app stores even if its just to get a a competitors service.

I used to disable facebook on my mothers phone everytime she got a new one, now she regularly uses facebook so complains when her phones battery life drops faster than her old phones, everytime its facebook up to some more spying and turning on mobile data and location.

Yup, lots of people immediately uninstall those apps. They are very intrusive.
