Twitter Quick Reply


A quick bookmarklet that I made for Asa Dotzler. If you’ve ever visited a tweet, on Twitter, directly, and had wished to immediately reply to its author you probably found it to be quite convoluted (typically this is the case if you subscribe to services like Summize or Tweetscan. It usually involves copying the username, visiting the reply screen, and then typing/pasting in the relevant parts to make the @reply. Instead you can just use the following bookmarklet to make that easy.

  1. javascript:window.location=window.location.href.replace(/(com.)([^.\/]+).*/,"$1home?status=@$2+");

First, Drag this to your bookmark bar: Twitter Reply

Second, visit a tweet: http://twitter.com/jeresig/statuses/841204003

Then hit the bookmarklet and you should be taken to the reply screen with “@jeresig ” (or whatever the appropriate username is) already pre-filled in. Enjoy!

P.S. As a bonus it maintains the http/https URL protocol, as well.
