I have Twitter installed via the MS Edge dev feature of the mentioned version, links to the profile page of a person should open in the installed app (Twitter) but the MS Edge (Dev) opens another tab on the browser itself which adds an extra step to open it in the app.

@shaswattafs thanks for providing feedback on this feature. To clarify: where are you clicking on the link to the profile page? Are you in the app itself or clicking from email or ???

@johnjansen IDK about the profile page but redirect links to a person's twitter profile from another site like YouTube or Gmail opens another tab which instead should open the Installed App
