Twitterbridge: link in "from Twitter" leads to Twitter homepage not tweet
OpenPublic

Description

Clicking on "Twitter" down a tweet leads to the homepage of Twitter not the tweet itself. Expected to lead to the tweet as clicking on the instance name down a notice leads to the notice on the server that broadcasted it.

I think this is related to the home-grown and arbitrarily constructed Twitter URI stored is used as the URL - and the URL is no longer valid since some random change on Twitter's proprietary side.

If someone wants to dig through the TwitterBridge, sure. Fix it. But I think it will require an ugly hack - or rewriting all stored/new URLS to match a new pattern.
