Twitter is a great social media platform but its usability seems to go from bad to worse with each interface update. In fact, it is so confusing that many users find themselves wondering how to find and share their Twitter profile URL.
With that in mind, I have put together this quick tutorial answering the popular questions:
- What is my Twitter URL?
- How to find my twitter URL on the app?
- How to I share my Twitter account?
- In your Twitter app, tap your profile pic in the top-left and tap “Profile”
- Choose any of your tweets on your profile feed and tap “share” icon
- Next, tap “Copy link to tweet”
Now, to share this link, you can copy-paste the link whenever you need but delete the part after your username:
- Delete the numbers after /username/ part in the URL
- Press and hold the URL to highlight it
- Tap copy in the copy-paste menu
- Next press and hold to paste the URL where you want to send it (your message or social media DM)
