Intents url is not wrapped with t.co


#1

Hi,

The example listed on https://dev.twitter.com/docs/intents#tweet-intent does not work.
This URL https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?url=http%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FIn_Watermelon_Sugar is supposed to produce a tweet with a link minified via t.co, but instead it produces a tweet with a full link.

As a result the tweet functionality on our website that relies on automatic link minification is broken, as the user sees “Your tweet was over 140 characters.” message.

Is it a known issue? Is there a workaround?

Are you sure that’s the case? It looks to be wrapping the URL (not minified, wrapped) to the expected character count. Are you sure the other text you’re providing doesn’t add up to beyond 140 characters once considering the URL as 20 characters?
