    If you make a tweet on Twitter which includes a link to Amazon (including your aff tag), it will also give users the option to see a preview of the product, with a few Amazon customer reviews (if applicable).

    The problem here is that, whilst your hyperlink in your tweet includes your aff tag, the link when you click the 'Learn more or buy' Amazon button doesn't.

    I'm wondering if there's anyway around this, so that Twitter doesn't know it's an Amazon link, and therefore doesn't show the preview - it just shows the tweet text.

    I've found an example on Google:

    It's not just with amzn shortcuts; it seems to do it with others too.
