Force Twitter Desktop version in Safari on iPad (and other mobile browsers)
I can be a bit thick sometimes... but this has been bugging me for months. But not enough to do anything beyond a quick Google search.
Anyhoo: When you visit twitter.com with Safari on the iPad, you come to the mobile version of Twitter. Always. Usually, on many (but not all) mobile devices a link on the mobile site allows you to switch to the Desktop version. Not so in Safari. The link is inactive. Invisible.
Here's how to switch:
Visit the mobile site with Safari (or your other troublesome mobile browser), log into your Twitter account.
Then: type https://mobile.twitter.com/settings/change_ui in the address bar and go... that should take you to the full Twitter page.
