Twitter has announced that it has launched a new HTML5-based web interface for the iPad, and will be rolling it out soon. “We’ve launched our HTML5 version of twitter.com for iPad,” reads an update on Twitter Mobile’s account. “It will be rolling out to device owners over the next week or so.” Citing Twitter mobile engineer Manuel Deschamps, TechCrunch reports that the new interface was based on Twitter’s HTML5 client for iPhone and Android. “The HTML5 app provides a great option for people who prefer to use the browser over native apps,” said Twitter representative Carolyn Penner. “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.” The new interface will be accessible by loading twitter.com from the Safari browser on the iPad.
