Prevent urls from being appended


#1

I have the following:

<a href="https://twitter.com/share?text=Check%20this%20out%3A%20http%3A%2F%2Fdomain.com%20%40usertag" target="_blank">
	<span class="nt-share nt-share-twitter-1"></span>
</a>

What the client wants in the tweet:
Check this out: http://domain.com @usertag

What shows up:
Check this out: http://domain.com @usertag
http://domain.com

I found the following, but there is nothing in that discussion that helps.

Is there anyway to prevent twitter from appending the second URL ?
