We display embedded tweets, rendered with twttr.widgets.load(), on our website. Recently, tapping on an intent button (“Like,” “Retweet” etc.) of one of these embedded tweets from a mobile device would open the intent action in the Twitter mobile app, if the app is present on the device. However, testing today, it is back to opening it in a new browser window — a far clunkier experience. (We’ve made absolutely no changes to our code.) Seems like it could be related to recent changes, reversion, and subsequent release of changes to the widgets script.
Does anyone know if the auto-deep-linking is due to return soon? If not, has anyone used event listening and link rewriting successfully to deep-link the intents? Or is there anything we should do on our side to get this very nice functionality back? Thanks!
