    If you shorten a long affiliate link with a site like twurl does it break the affiliate link?

    In most cases it doesn't. You could always test it. :)

    You could always setup a double meta refresh or something and do it yourself.

    Just test it. It should be pretty easy to just shorten it and see how it reacts.
