URL not shortened on API post


Hi all,

I am using Matt Gemmell’s MGTwitter library with iOS6. I was able to post just fine using the base functionality (the sendUpdate: method of MGTwitterEngine), but whenever I throw a URL into the mix, it gets truncated and not shortened.

From what I understood of the docs on the URL Shortener, ANY URL will be shortened upon submission through POST status/update, which is exactly what I am using.

Am I doing something so doltishly wrong I just don’t see it? Can anyone shed any light on this?

Thanks for any input.
