Can't force Twitter links to open in Twitter app

GetHuman-stevros's customer service issue with Twitter from May 2020

Help with my Twitter issue
The issue in GetHuman-stevros's own words
When I click on a Tweet link on the Facebook Messenger android app (in chat) on my Samsung Galaxy S** *G phone, the links have started opening in the Twitter in app browser. I've reset every conceivable setting I can find*think of, cleared my defaults, cleared the app data*cache, uninstalled both apps, even done a factory reset of my phone, but nothing is working. I've changed the app settings directly in the Twitter app (Settings & Privacy*Display and Sound*Use in-app browser) and deselected that, no good. On my phone I've gone to Settings*Apps*Twitter*Set As Default*Go to supported URLs and selected "In this app". I've cleared the defaults for the app as well. I can't think of anything else to do, I feel like I need to hand my phone over to someone so they can look through and find what I've managed to do to mess it up. I've messaged their @TwitterSupport account on Twitter. No response as yet. I just want to go back to having links to Tweets in the Facebook messenger mobile app to open in the Twitter app, not in Twitter's in-app browser.**Thanks*Daniel
