When I copy a t.co link (tap/hold > Copy link) from the Twitter app, I am unable to paste into any web forms in Mobile Safari. I can still paste into other objects (e.g. the address bar, the search bar, the Notes app, etc).

Is this a bug? How can I avoid having to first paste the link and then recopy (Select All > Copy) it as @iglvzx suggests in the comments?

  • Which web page? Which form? Most likely, this is a problem with the web page itself, rather than iOS or Twitter.

  • I try to paste the link on the search form on google.com

  • Strange. I can confirm this. I workaround is to paste it somewhere else and then Select All > Copy. Then you can paste it into Google. Edit: I stand corrected, there is something definitely going wrong here. Perhaps something with the way Twitter saves to the clipboard.

I had the same problem. I closed Twitter out and re-opened, then I was able to paste again.
