Where/how are they showing up?

 

Is it when you're using a web browser?   If so, which browser?  If an ad-blocker is available for the browser in question then I'd definitely install it.

 

Are they independent pop-ups?

 

The manner in which these things present will influence how one goes about getting rid of them.

Galaxy is a samsung brand, right ? just use their browser and install adblock & disconnect into it, that'll keep google's ad botnet away. 

 

Oh wait you use an app

 

ok, step 1. - don't use twitter app if you don't want any ads

 

meh just don't use a phone if you can't stand ads, besides it's not like you need to check your social media every 5 minutes on every free wifi hotspot, right ? 

use FF, preferably Nightly version, desktop, it has a nice GUI and use dev version of uBO in it.
