    My best friend, Google, told me that its impossible to avoid the default //t.co/ shortening "service" of Twitter.
    In some cases I need the raw URL (or at least shortened with different shortener). Anyone have a work around?

    t.co is their in-house shortener and always is there, on each link. Through it they are checking and "scanning" every link, looking for domain, number of link sent, content, looking for patterns of spammy/unsafe content.
