    I'm trying to make a .VBS script to click on a link from a Twitter tweet.

    For example twitter.com/NBA, you'll find any bit.ly link there.

    I understand using:

    Code:
    objExplorer.Document.All.Item("button_ID").Click
    But for Twitter the link doesn't have an "ID"
    Code:
    <a href="http://t.co/idQGOcQK" data-expanded-url="http://bit.ly/qsxUQC" 
    title="http://bit.ly/qsxUQC/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow" class="twitter-timeline-
    link" data-ultimate-url="http://bit.ly/qsxUQC/">bit.ly/qsxUQC</a>
    Any ideas?
