Hey there

 

Ok I have an HTML email coming to my gmail that I want zapier to grab and send the embedded URL to twitter.

I have successfully grabbed the email which is filtered so thats good but having trouble getting the link from it, the extract URL is not working under the zapier formatter. I see it in the HTML but how can I isolate is and grab it to post? It always starts with the same part of the URL
