Linking to an individual Tweet

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

How to find a Tweet's URL:

On the web:

  1. Locate the Tweet anywhere on
  2. Click the ••• More 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.


On Twitter for iOS or Twitter for Android:

  1. Locate the Tweet on your iOS or Android device.
  2. Tap the Tweet. This will bring you to the Tweet detail view.
  3. Next, tap the more icon •••  (iOS) or the overflow icon  (Android).
  4. Select Copy link to Tweet. The URL should now be copied to your clipboard.


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.
