I can get NO response from any twitter forum I can find, so I'll try here, where I usually get timely and excellent responses.

On my iPad (updated to iOS5), I do not like the twitter app. I just want to use the twitter.com site and bookmark it, having it look/act the same as twitter.com looks/acts on my PC. Every time I try to put in the URL for www.twitter.com on the iPad, it reverts to mobile.twitter.com which is NOT the same. Is there a way around this (same would be true on my iPhone, I assume)?

I can't find a link to the non-mobile version, but a work around would be using an alternate browser. A browser such as iCabMobile can change the ID of the browser to make it look like you're using Safari on the Mac (for example) instead of Safari on the iPad. You can change this as default behaviour or site specific (so certain sites will load mobile or desktop).
