I don't like asking open ended questions without providing anything but I can't find any resources on this.  

Simply put, is there a way to link to android/iphone facebook or twitter native apps from an anchor tag when a mobile browser is detected.

The site that I am trying to make this work on runs wordpress.

Thanks,

I wanted to know if there was a simple way to code an anchor link to open a phone or tablets native facebook/twitter application rather than going to the mobile browser version of facebook/twitter.

Okay, great.  

Yes, at least on iOS:

There is probably a similar Android structure present in the Facebook SDK:
