Hey, Just wanted toclarify what is and isn't supported at the moment - and to explain the problem Adam is seeing.
The Search API still supports searching by domain and matching shortened links. Remember that Search doesn't contain a complete index of Tweets but is instead based around relevance. This means not all Tweets are represented. If a Tweet contains a shortened URL - and we were able to expand that URL before indexing - it will be found. Also remember the search index is only ~5 days and so Tweets made before them will not be found. The 'expand URL' feature you are referring to in Search is a visual element and doesn't reflect if a URL has been expanded or not. For the Streaming API our engineers are working on support for entities, which will allow t.co URLs to match to their expanded URLs. In the Tweet Button, the counturl is still a supported and useful parameter. Adam: in the example you give the URL and counturl are the same - which is wrong. Instead you want users to Tweet the short URL, but Twitter to count the expanded form. This means the http://sbn.to/dB76xp URL should be the data-url parameter and the data-counturl should be: http://www.sbnation.com/ncaa-football/2010/9/26/1712470/arizona-california-final-pac-10-crazy Hope that helps, @themattharris Developer Advocate, Twitter http://twitter.com/themattharris On Thu, Sep 30, 2010 at 7:37 AM, Adam Trilling <adam.sbnat...@gmail.com> wrote: > Interesting...that explains why it used to work and then it stopped.
