Updating Twitter to the latest version will let you see the video caption if it has already been rolled out in your country. It was revealed that the feature is still in beta testing and is only rolled out to some users.
You can get a good VPN with your Twitter app to use the feature in an unsupported region.

It can help you watch a video from a noisy place and when you do not speak or understand the language used in a video. If you have a different opinion about this feature and do not need it, you can disable it.
