Browser Widget and Twitter on iOS 13

That tester has both iPhone and iPad and I know there both running the same
version of iOS. iPhone doesn't get the message but the iPad does. I will
find out if there both up to the latest 13.x.x. (it flew out of my head
after I heard they were running the same version)

Odd indeed but I(well Panos) just found a iPad oddity that a couple of iPad
Mini models running 12.x would only load local web pages if they were in the
temp folder. So this unified iOS SW/HW thing is not 100% yet.

So that is just odd - it might be worth checking that said iPad has the
latest version of iOS13...

There's a small chance that Apple has fixed something in WKWebView on
iOS13 in some .x increment, and Twitter has blocked the versions before (via

Safari and WKWebView are not the same thing (I think Safari might use its
own private version of WebKit under the hood - although I'm not 100% sure
about that) so the Safari comparison might not be relevant in this case.
