How To Find The URL Of A Single Tweet

Twitter_logo_blue Laura Roeder recently wrote an extremely value-packed article called “Twitter Photo Tips: The Ultimate Guide For Social Marketers in 2014.”  I commend it to you highly if you’re posting photos to Twitter or using Instagram. At the end of the post, she wrote, “Got a photo tweet you’re particularly proud of? Link to it in the comments.” That sounded great because so many people read her blog that being invited to post a link to one of my tweets sounded great for visibility. But then I realized I didn’t have a clue how to find the link (also called permalink, URL or website address) to a specific tweet.

Turns out, it’s pretty simple. Here’s the scoop, straight from Twitter:

  1. Locate the Tweet anywhere on Click on your own profile (the ME icon) to see only your own tweet stream.
  2. Click on the Tweet (you can click anywhere in the Tweet). The Tweet will expand to a slightly larger size and will have more information on the bottom about when that Tweet was posted.
  3. Click on Details next to the Tweet’s timestamp. (This link does not expire, except if the Tweet is deleted.)
  4. Copy the URL that shows up in your browser’s address bar.
  5. Paste the URL in a message to anyone with whom you want to share 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.

Here’s the link I posted to a tweet in which I had used a photo:

Now you try it! And have a great weekend.
