    I don't want to risk my Twitter account as I have a very active following but I want to start direct linking to some affiliate offers and just wondering whether Google bans these links? I mean I would obviously shorten the URL's using services online -- but wouldn't Twitter know and ban them anyways?

    Of course they can find out.

    There are several sites where you can enter a short URL, and it reveals the location where it directs you to.

    Anyway - I posted a reply on the private forum. You can see my detailed response in there, since I have limited functionality on BHW.

    Actually i am also not sure about this. You have really done some good job that before doing anything you are making it sure that there will be no problem at all.
