Unlike Android, linking to web content on iOS requires you to either prompt to open something in a browser or build a mini-browser window in-app using a WebView.
It can be a little confusing, since you have a number of apps (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc) building their own mini-browsers that are slightly different from Safari/Chrome/whatever someone is familiar with.
I was thinking about what if instead of trying to replicate the browser experience with forward/back buttons, refresh buttons, URL boxes, etc. you created a more consistent experience.
In the case of Twitter, you're most likely coming either from a Tweet or from a link on someone's profile.
Why not show the same tweet chrome and push forward, rather than throwing a modal view? 
If you click on a link that wasn't mentioned in a tweet, the Reply, Retweet, and Favorite options become a Compose button. When you press compose, your tweet is prepopulated with a shortened link to the page you were looking at. 
My guess is that it would be easier to use, but that there would be an increase in tweets from what is currently a dead-end experience in the iOS app.

 I can't tell you the number of times I hit the X to close the WebView when I just meant to hit back in the browser.
 It could get even more interesting if the website you were looking at had Twitter cards in the tags. When you press compose, your tweet could have an @-mention of the site's Twitter account (eg. you're on nytimes.com and you get @nytimes).
It would be one less step than a traditional browser "share" menu to share via Twitter.
