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

Any help is appreciated.
