Problem opening weblink in native app on IOS


Have a simple twitter link on our site to our own twitter account - ‘’. Works fine on 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!


Many thanks for your help Alex - we’ll keep an eye on this thread for any updates on timescales.


Sounds good! Thanks again for letting us know about this.
