Problem opening weblink in native app on IOS


#1

Have a simple twitter link on our site to our own twitter account - ‘https://twitter.com/samhtweets’. Works fine on mobile.twitter.com but on ios it opens it in the native app but strips out the ‘tweets’ in our ‘samhtweets’ handle so then opens the @samh account in the native app - this is not our account.

Anyone seen this before or know how to workaround it without changing the handle.

Hey @SAMHtweets, thanks for reaching out about this! I was able to reproduce and it seems like a bug in the Twitter app. I’m going to raise this up to the team for you so we can look into getting it fixed up!
