Does Twitter crawl the links posted/tweeted through its API's?



I post a link on Twitter using Twitter API. Does Twitter crawls these links. I observed that the visitor count was increasing on my website whose link I tweeted on Twitter using the API, while no real user had clicked the link. This led me to infer that Twitter is crawling these urls posted on it.

Kindly provide guidance on the same.


Yes, Twitter crawls URLs that appear in tweets.
