Click & Drag URLs in Twitter for Mac

Mar 7, 2011 - 1 Comment

Twitter for Mac icon You can click and drag any URL in Twitter for Mac to another application, this is particularly helpful if you want to open a URL in a different browser rather than the default web browser set system-wide in OS X.

For example, if you want to launch a Twitter URL in Chrome, simply click and drag the URl from a tweet from the Twitter client into the Chrome browser URL bar, and it’ll launch instantly.

Getting it right can be a little challenging at first, but all you need to do is click and hold on a URL until the URL is darkened, then you can drag it elsewhere from the Twitter app. This works in all OS X web browsers, including Safari, Firefox, and Chrome, and probably some of the lesser used browsers too.


This works in all versions of the Twitter app for OS X too.
