Hmmm - the wording "This browser is no longer supported. Please switch
to a supported browser or disable the extension which masks you browser
to continue using twitter.com" suggests that twitter.com is using the
userAgent string to determine access.
I'm pretty sure the old UIWebView (which we replaced with WKWebView in
9.6) didn't support a custom user agent string - but the new WKWebView
Are you setting `the userAgent` property of the browser widget anywhere?
Of course, this wouldn't explain why it works in iOS12 / Android if this
is the problem...
