Twitter Web Intents

Easily start a tweet with the Twitter "mailto" equivalent

Context

In Coda, you’re able to open hyperlinks with a button:

Like this →
Open Google

=OpenWindow("www.google.com")

Or like this →
Open YouTube

=OpenWindow("www.youtube.com")

But you can also use protocol handlers like
mailto:
to start an email draft if you have them setup in your browser for your default mail client:

=OpenWindow("mailto:support@coda.io")

Start an email

With Twitter

And while there isn’t a generic protocol handler for Twitter (e.g.
tweet:Hello world
), if you want to start a tweet w/ a button or link, you can do so using
ー which are URLs that look something like...

Tweet →
https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=...
Retweet →
https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?tweet_id=...
Like →
https://twitter.com/intent/like?tweet_id=...
Follow a user →
https://twitter.com/intent/follow?user_id=...

So
start a tweet
.
