I work for AWeber Communications in Huntingdon Valley PA. We provide email marketing solutions for small to medium sized businesses and have 100,000+ active customers. We utilize the Twitter API to allow a customer to automatically post status updates to their twitter account when they send out a mailing. The urls in the status updates sometimes end with a hyphen. Up until recently, these have been auto-linked correctly by twitter. Recently this changed, and the hyphens at the end of the link are not included in the links I post to the API. For example, http://aweber.com/b/os7- would have linked correctly before, but now links to http://aweber.com/b/os7 instead. Is this a bug or a permanent change at Twitter?
Is there a way to explicitly define the links that get picked up, display_url maybe? I see that complete urls and start / end points are included in the entities: urls section of a tweet, but it is not clear if I am able to _submit_ the entities section for my own posts. Any help is appreciated. -- Twitter developer documentation and resources: http://dev.twitter.com/doc API updates via Twitter: http://twitter.com/twitterapi Issues/Enhancements Tracker: http://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/list Change your membership to this group: http://groups.google.com/group/twitter-development-talk
