    I made a new URL that I never posted using bit.ly but twitter blocked it. Does twitter see I posted 20 links the day before and blocked any further links even if they are a different URL? Should I use another link shortener maybe because I used bit.ly too much the day before it blocked me? How can I posted 15-20 links per day without people seeing a warning? Thanks.

    Twitter blocks domains also. When a domain is blocked, URL shorteners do not work

    For example I have been shortening my CJ affiliate link whose URL is www.jdoqocy.com. So twitter knows that my bit.ly link is going to www.jdoqocy.com? I was thinking as long as I change my tracking code at the end and make new bit.ly links going to the same landing page I would be fine.

    What is the best option for me to do now? Should I just use a domain name and just 301 redirect to the www.jdoqocy.com affiliate link? But if I post my domain name redirect on twitter pointing to www.jdoqocy.com...whats the difference than doing it via bit.ly? Thanks.

    After posting this I was thinking about redirects that keep your URL/link on the merchant page. Does anyone know what those type of redirects are called. Like for example www.example.com/cjlink will show as the link and not www.jdoqocy.com. Would this "trick" twitter to think its only going to www.example.com/cjlink? Thanks.
