content type, which can be useful in determining how, or if to use the
link in your display.
that would be an awesome service!
I was just wondering if Twitter were going to possibly supply this extra
data, as it would remove a time & resource intensive step in the tweet
analysis process :).
Another question, will you wrap links that have no protocol in tweets, eg :
"Hey check out www.mysite.com/evil_page"
"Hey check out mysite.com/evil_page"
I imagine many clients will currently link these out as urls and link
them up automatically?

Any chance of getting the title of the resolved URL added in here
too if available?
Then we could display a link like :
<a title="Twitter Dev" href="http://t.co/s9gfk2d4">
<a title="http://dev.twitter.com" href="http://t.co/s9gfk2d4">
This would give even more context to users, without having to follow
the redirect path, & load and parse the page to extract it as well.
