    What are you saying???? GODDAMN I'm tired of people talking like apes around here. I know a lot of members don't use english as their native language but damn man you're from the UK.

    Since I've been here long enough to have a rudimentary understanding of blackhatinternetspeak, I think what you're asking is why doesn't your entire affiliate link show up? It's probably because twitter has a limite to the number of characters you can enter there I don't know. You shouldn't be using your freakin' affiliate link there anyway. It will look ridiculous.

    yup exactly what the guy above me said.. any if anything you should use a cloaking website like tinyurl . com to hide your affiliate link.

    I think I know what you're talking about.

    Some URL shorteners seem to strip out the affiliate info from the link when it's posted to Twitter.

    I've had luck with Tiny URL in this case.

    Nice retort. But my point in that thread was that, being new to twitter, I was seeing links IN TWEETS that were tinyurl links. I assumed incorrectly that it was the person tweeting that did that. I was then corrected and told that twitter replaces all links with tinyurl links.

    What YOU said in your post, and correct me if I'm wrong, was that you were trying to put your whole freakin aff link in your profile. Who does that??
    Besides, my little shit fit wasn't over that. It was over some kind of jumbled post-language that you used that made it hard to even translate into proper english.

    Try bit.ly , I see almost all the IM guys to post their urls with it so they can have a statistics on the amount of clicks.
    Try it.

    Twitter doesn't replace all links with tinyurl.
