Am I missing something? I've scoured settings, etc., but I can't find an option to force iOS to open Twitter links via the app rather than via Safari.

It's driving me crazy. Thank you for any suggestions!

Both have the same version of the Twitter app installed? Both are on the sesame iOS version?

Same for me on iOS 9. I believe it is the way it is, it can't be changed.

This is what drives me nuts. If Twitter is fullscreen and I click a link I can read the story from the app and hit 'done' and can continue looking at my feed. If I'm running Twitter in slide-over mode and click a link it takes over my main window with Safari. I want to read the link in slide-over!
