Create a URL to autogenerate a Twitter @mention

Posted on 10. Oct, 2012 by in hacks, ideas

If you are looking to direct someone to easily be able to send a tweet to a specific Twitter handle simply use the following format:

https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?screen_name=YOURTWITTERHANDLE

For example: In order to create a Tweet to @julienbrandt create the following link format:

https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?screen_name=julienbrandt

You can then use that URL as the anchor text like:

Tweet at Julien Brandt

Just a quick tip that took me a couple minutes to find so I figured I would share!
