    I've gone to a few Twitter sites, it loads, then drops and a message tells me "this page does not exist. Try a new search?" What is the problem?

    Could be old urls. Are you getting a 404 error code?

    No error code. Only the message I quoted and that after the site opens and remains for about two seconds.

    This happens only on my iPad and not my laptop, MacBook Pro or my desk iMac.

    Sorry - I mean what version of iOS are you running on your iPad, the latest being 6.1.2?

    Also are you having the problem with Twitter while using the Twitter App, your browser or both?

    Because your other devices are working properly it's possible your iPad's cache is getting junkie. Try clearing it.

    Open your device's Settings.
    Navigate to Safari and select Clear Cookies and Cache.

    Here's what you'll be looking at.

    I did that and I do it regularly. No change. 'Tis a mystery!

    Indeed. I'll keep sniffing around and post here if I find anything that may be helpful.

    In the meantime - just for the heck of it, delete your Twitter app and re-install it. See if that does anything.

    Twitter sites?

    Do you mean going to sites by taping on a link in a tweet?

    If so, try the site using Safari instead. The built in browsers in Twitter clients are often less able than Safari. In the official Twitter app you can choose to go to Safari by taping and holding on the link, then choosing Open in Safari from the choices.

    Or, if you've taped on the site already and it is not displaying properly then tap on the share icon (arrow coming out of a box) at the top right, and choose Open in Safari.

    After you are done viewing the article (or whatever) in Safari you can quickly go back to the Twitter app by either double clicking the Home button and choosing the app from the multitask bar, or swiping to the left with four (or five) fingers (goes back to the previous app).

    I do use Safari directly but don't last long enough on the site to take any action.

    Strange. If it's not private or breaks the forum rules, could you supply a sample link, or PM me with one so I can take a look?

    It would be better if you sent a Twitter link to twerppoet via PM, as posting it here on the forums would be in violation of the rules.
