Is this still not resolved after nearly 4 years? I'm on a macbook pro, using safari, and the last month or so any time i try to click on a t.co link, 9 times out of 10 nothing happens, the page seems like it's trying to load, but doesn't. I close the new window and click the link again, sometimes have to do this several times before there's an actual error message. Usually once the error page appears, I close it, click the link again and it finally works. But several times this just is too annoying and I give up on trying to access someone I'm following's link. What gives? Fix the damn issue before spending time on allowing people to create longer twitter posts.
