Linking to an individual Tweet or Moment

Did you know you can link to a Tweet or Moment, just like you link to a webpage? Every Tweet and Moment has its own URL that you can bookmark or share with friends.

How to find a Tweet's URL

Via the web:

  1. Locate the Tweet anywhere on twitter.com.
  2. Click the  icon located within the Tweet.
  3. From the menu that pops up, select Copy link to Tweet.
  4. A prompt will display the link to the Tweet so you can copy it to your clipboard.

 

From the Twitter for iOS app:

  1. Navigate to the Tweet you’d like the URL of.
  2. Tap the  icon located at the top of the Tweet.
  3. Tap Share Tweet via.
  4. Select Copy link to Tweet. The URL should now be copied to your clipboard.

  1. Navigate to the Tweet you’d like the URL of.
  2. Tap the  icon located at the top of the Tweet.

Whenever you view a Tweet's permanent link, you can see:

  • The exact time and date the Tweet was posted.
  • The number of favorites and retweets the Tweet received.
