Twitter is enhancing its mobile site to make it more friendly for iPad users.
Tweeting the news earlier this week, Twitter said it plans to roll out an HTML5 version of twitter.com to iPad owners over the next week or so.
Though Twitter was mum on any further details, TechCrunch offered a peek at the mobile site's new look and feel. Taking advantage of HTML5, the new design uses a dual-pane approach, improving on the current mobile site's single-pane display.
Twitter did not immediate return CNET's request for further details. But company spokeswoman Carolyn Penner told TechCrunch that "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 capabilities."
