Outlook approval to post tweet with url

When I try to post a tweet with a url through Flow, the tweet comes out with a bunch of nonsense. For example, when I tweet "Interesting article!" followed by a url, it looks like this: 

 

Interesting article! <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"> <meta content="text/html; charset=utf-8"> </head> <body> <div dir="ltr"><a href="google.com">google.com</a></div> </body> </html>

 

When a link to an actual article is used, the character limit for twitter is passed, causing the flow to fail.

Is there a way to only tweet "Interesting read!" followed by the link? I attached a picture of what my flow is currently looking like below. 

 

Thanks!

Re: Outlook approval to post tweet with url

Hi @AlphaTech ,

 

I did a test on my side, and we can only fill the text in Tweet text field.

Email body is actually Html, which is not suitable here. If you want to post the contents of the email body, please consider using Html to text.

First use Html to text to convert the email body to text, then post.

Or if you want to include a url in tweet, you could type the link address directly.

Hope it helps.
