I don't use facebook or Twitter and I shouldn't have to see references to them in the settings section or the "share" dropdowns of Safari, the photo management screens, or anywhere else. Can anyone tell me how to remove these references?
To the best of my knowledge you can't.
You can try going into the settings and restrictions and turn them off and see if that makes the icons disappear (probably won't) but there's no way to select the icons you want.
