My tweets all have broken links right now.
here are a few of them:
http://is.gd/3HsuO,<a encoded as http://is.gd/3HsuO,%3Ca
http://is.gd/3HjBL,<a encoded as http://is.gd/3HjBL,%3Ca
http://is.gd/3HjfP,<a encoded as http://is.gd/3HjfP,%3Ca

can you look at this issue, please?
Thanks in advance,
Best Regards
