Let's Beat the Redirect / Meta Refresh - Saving Redirect Webpages

Right, so I've managed to grab the page using a browser, so I can parse and "lengthen" a shortlink if I have the HTML source code. (will share in an edit when I'm at a computer)


However I can't seem to find a way in Power Automate to get a Flow to grab that page which exists only for a split-second.


Essentially I need to save the HTML file (I don't think it's a 301) that Twitter uses to send you on your way, and farm their data.


I've tried the OneDrive file download from URL, but that saves the destination page, which isn't useful here.


Who wants to crowd source this flow? You lot do the download, I'll get the URL! 😉🤙
