Safari Not Opening Short Links from Twitter on iPhone and iPad Twitter Short Link Not Working in Safari on iPhone or iPad

Solution #1.

The very first solution is to reloading the link multiple times. It is certainly a pain, but the solution worked for me few times. After reloading the link multiple times, I was able to open few of the Twitter links on Safari. So give it a try if the link is worth the hard work.

Solution #2.

Once you click the link, check the address bar of Safari browser. If the URL displays “https” prefix then rename it to simple “http” and reload the link. This trick is working for most of the links to open in Safari. The solution seems to be more promising and recommend giving it a try.

Solution #3.

We have given a detailed guide on clearing Cache and History from Safari in iPhone and iPad. Give it a try by clearing website data from Safari by following the guide and then reload the link. In case that doesn’t help you, then we have one last solution below.

Solution #4.

The Twitter short links are working fine in other browsers like Chrome and Firefox. So head to App Store if you don’t have any of those browsers installed and then open the link and you’ll be able to browse the content easily. This is the final solution until Apple releases the fix for the problem.
