Currently if I want to open a tweet in a separate tab (usually so I can read the replies later), I have to:

  • Click the tweet

  • Go to the URL bar in my browser

  • Copy the URL

  • Open a new tab

  • Paste URL and enter

  • Go back to previous tab

  • Click the "back" arrow to get back to the feed

It'd be easier if there each tweet had an <a> tag I could middle-click with my mouse's scrollbar to open in a separate tab, but there is none.

Is there a faster way?

  • Ya, I really hate the fact that I can't right click and open in new window! I don't want to lose my place. Commented Jan 17, 2021 at 16:31

Easy one-click opening of a tweet in separate tab:

  1. Locate the date/time stamp of the desired tweet

  1. Click it with the scroll-wheel of your mouse

  • Note that this works on a normal tweet in the feed, but not for the date/time stamp for a tweet being quoted. If you hover your mouse over the date/time stamp for a quoted tweet, it is not underlined and there is no right-clickable link. Commented Jan 15, 2020 at 21:16

Apparently it's possible to middle-click the timestamp:
