    Many sites when viewed on the iPad using Safari block the use of pinch zoom.
    Example twitter

    https://mobile.twitter.com/barcastuff/tweets


    Found a tip to allow zooming on all sites:
    Tip that worked for me was the one beginning with Ugh.

    http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/28391/how-can-i-force-pinch-to-zoom-on-some-websites

    Basically create a bookmark called AllowZoom with the following link:

    javascript:document.querySelector('meta%5Bname=viewport%5D').setAttribute('content','width=device-width,initial-scale=1.0,maximum-scale=10.0,user-scalable=1');

    After the site loads , press the link , then pinch zoom works.

    Also some 3rd browsers like iCabMobile have a Always Allow Zooming setting.
