How to Quickly Jump to Lists in Tweetbot for iOS

Tweet This Post

Tweetbot has a list of URL schemes, the most recent of which is one to jump immediately to a Twitter list. I have never used it until now because I never knew how to find a list's ID. But now that I've figured it out, I'd like to share it with you.

The full scheme is

tweetbot://<screenname>/list/<list_id>?callback_url=<url> 

but you don't need to include the ? parameter unless you want to go somewhere other than your most recent timeline view in the app.

Let's say I want to view my ios Twitter list. To get the list ID, I view the source of the web page and search for data-list-id. In this example, the source code includes data-list-id="79393622". I take that value and put it in the URL scheme:

tweetbot://kishner/list/79393622

If I include this as an action in Launch Center Pro, then clicking on it will bring me right to that list.

If I have a preferred app I want to go to after I click the Cancel button, I can include the callback_url parameter, which is an encoded URL. If I want to go to Launch Center Pro:

tweetbot://kishner/list/79393622?callback_url=launch://

If I want to go to an actual website like google.com instead:

tweetbot://kishner/list/79393622?callback_url=http%3A%2F%2Fgoogle.com

Enjoy!
