    My Twitter account is not working properly. I can open the pages in my iPhone,but I can not open them on my IPad. Using the same account credentials. But in my iPad I get an error message: something went wrong. Try again later. But that has been going on for many days now. The internet is working fine fast speed Internet. I have reinstalled the app, changed passwords and tried many different things but still not solve the problem. Still can open on phone but not on iPad. Both from Apple. (IPhone 12 and IPad Pro)
