Twitter is redirecting to store even though app is installed on device


#1

Hi all,

We are trying to implement branch.io links within twitter so that we can dynamically deep link into the app with a custom login and registration experience, not to mention the added analytics. Anyway, when a user clicks a branch link within twitter, the user sees a alert view to open the url, however, before the user can do anything, twitter redirects to the store even though the app is already installed. Our goal is to redirect to the branch link, or simply allow the user to go to that link, so that from there, branch controls the deep links and store redirects and not twitter. This is why we are using the “summary” card. Below is the meta data of an example branch link created for http://txt.lettrs.com/l/3dBs44U-0m

		<meta property="al:ios:url" content="lettrs://letters/54f711987390737548005f14?link_click_id=101320558670514532" />
	
	
		<meta property="al:ios:app_store_id" content="633501301" />
	
	
		<meta property="al:ios:app_name" content="lettrs" />
	
	
		<meta property="al:android:url" content="lettrs://letters/54f711987390737548005f14?link_click_id=101320558670514532" />
	
	
		<meta property="al:android:package" content="com.lettrs.lettrs2" />
	
	
		<meta property="al:android:app_name" content="lettrs" />
	
	
		<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary" />
	
	
		<meta property="og:image" content="http://s3.amazonaws.com/ugc.lettrs/uploads/letter/preview_image/54f711987390737548005f14/preview.jpg" />
		<meta name="twitter:image:src" content="http://s3.amazonaws.com/ugc.lettrs/uploads/letter/preview_image/54f711987390737548005f14/preview.jpg" />

Not sure what to do from here, really frustrating and not alot of stack overflow about branch or twitter cards. Any help would be much appreciated.

I have same issues. Gmail app also works same way if branch deep link is shared via email.

I just send email to branch support, and waiting for response, because I am not sure where problem is. If you have any clue, and figure out how to resolve this please post solution, I will do same if I find answer.
