It is surprisingly difficult to do this share a page link from iPad Safari to Twitter. The best solution seems to be the Twitter Share bookmarklet, which isn’t as simple as you might expect.
How to Add The Bookmarklet
- Add this page as a bookmark by tapping the “+” icon
- Select/highlight the entire Twitter Share Bookmarklet Code below and copy the it to your clipboard
- In Safari go to your bookmarks and edit this new bookmark
- Edit the name and paste the Bookmarklet code in the field for the URL
Twitter Share Bookmarklet Code
This combined with the bookmarks bar option is a great way to quickly save/send any webpage you view in Safari on your iPad to Twitter.
