It is really simple to share Text and Images to Android App using explicit Intent, all you need to know is the package name of Android App, which you can get by visiting the Play Store url for twitter app :

You can see that the id parameter in the url is noting but the package name for Twitter app.

Example :

    To demonstrate lets create an App with a Activity having a TextView and a Button, onClick of the button we send the Image and Text message to Twitter App.

    import android.content.Intent;
    import android.os.Bundle;
    import android.view.View;
    import android.widget.TextView;
    public class MainActivity extends ActionBarActivity {
    	private TextView tweetText;
    	protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    		tweetText = (TextView) findViewById(;
    	public void sendTweet(View v) {
    		String msg = tweetText.getText().toString();
    		Uri uri = Uri
    		Intent intent = new Intent();
    		intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, msg);
    		intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, uri);
