You might be able to use a custom url scheme, and it would maybe work, but only for users who have your app installed. I also tried out FIrebase Dynamic Links today, it kind of works - the thing needed (which they do) is they put an intermediate page after the twitter link tap - on that page the real universal link is shown which can be used to open the app and deep link. There are a few steps to installing it all and creating each link, some of it can be automated, some can be done manually etc. Might not fit every use case. I think there are other similar services doing the sameish thing.
