Clicking a link thats tweeted?

Recommended Posts


Okay iv been trying to figure this out on my own for a few days now with no previel.

So what i want to do is load a twitter page and click a link matching a regex string.

or somthing similar.

What are my options? iv seached the forums n tried to adapt some examples there but nothing has worked.

I know its possible in Vb.net as my friend is using it in his code how would i do this in autoit.ill see if i can find the code for VB n see if you can convert it

This Regex matches the links i want to click. -


html Text for link is embeded in <strong>


Here is An Example of the <a> Tag.

<a data-ultimate-url="[url=""]http://www.mylocaljobboard.com/[/url]" href="[url="view-source:http://t.co/7Os3ES20"]http://t.co/7Os3ES20[/url]" data-expanded-url="[url=""]http://mylikes.com/l/1uvG4[/url]" title="[url=""]http://mylikes.com/l/1uvG4[/url]" target="[url=""]_blank[/url]" rel="[url=""]nofollow[/url]" class="[url=""]twitter-timeline-link[/url]"><strong>mylikes.com</strong>/l/1uvG4</a>
