URL of DMs

May 16, 2014 at 10:44 AM
a tweet usually has a URL which can be defined something like

"https://twitter.com/"< theTweet.Creator.ScreenName>"/status/"<theTweet.Idstr>


Is there an equivalent for showing a Direct Message (or more accurately, the window of Direct Messages between two parties) ?

Not to my knowledge. What are you trying to achieve?

I would like the action of clicking on a link (say) presented in an email to launch a web browser at a URL which would show messages between the two parties (following the usual browser authentication step). Doable with a normal tweet, but I wanted to do this for DMs.

I think you are looking for the following url: https://twitter.com/direct_messages/create/[User.ScreenName]
