Twitter is the second most used social network on the internet after Facebook. Many of us use our iPhones and iPads to regularly use Twitter. Now taking that ease of use a notch further, Twitter is releasing a new HTML5 based web app for the iPad.
This new Twitter iPad web app is full HTML5 and is definitely a huge improvement as compared to the current one-paned Twitter mobile site. This new web app looks like Twitter.com meets the mobile Twitter apps on the iPhone and Android devices. Twitter is gradually rolling out this new HTML5 iPad web app and it will take around a week for it to be fully live for all users, globally..
Twitter representative Carolyn Penner says:
The HTML5 app provides a great option for people who prefer to use the browser over native apps. Its two-column view is consistent with the Twitter experience you're used to (on Twitter.com), and it takes advantage of touch gestures and other device capabilitiesHowever, for most of us, the new Twitter HTML5 iPad web app is live. Tell us, have you tried it out yet?.
