JensAre we interrested in this bullshit? https://bpaste.net/show/b90c23006be9
ctt.ec, some click-to-tweet malarkey.
Prepared tweets in a shortlink basically. With heaps of tracking of course.
[14:10]
JAAI'm having an /r/OfCourseThatsAThing moment here. [14:19]
JensYea, same here.
I don't know why people wouldn't just use https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=blah
[14:19]
JAAYou can append a + to the URL to get a straight redirect, by the way. [14:21]
JensHuh, I tried that, but it didn't seem to work. [14:21]
JAAReturns a 302 with "Location: http://" if the URL doesn't exist, it seems.
Maybe you need to escape it from your shell or something.
[14:22]
JensC:\Users\Jens>curl -i "https://ctt.ec/55eH9+"
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
[14:23]
JAAHmm
Maybe it doesn't work for all URLs.
aRUIN is the one I tried, because I found that link in their "hot list".
Wait, actually, that's a different thing.
https://ctt.ec/aRUIN is for tweeting that message, https://ctt.ec/aRUIN+ is a redirect to some related page.
So it's also a normal shortener, not just a tweet message thingy.
[14:23]
JensInteresting. [14:26]
JAAAnd if the message just contains a link, it redirects to that link.
E.g. top examples on https://clicktotweet.com/hotlist
According to their FAQ, what happens is that they shorten any link within the message (except pic.twitter.com and bit.ly).
[14:27]
JensSo... ctt.ec shortens links, which twitter then shortens again with t.co. The shortening rabbit hole goes deep. [14:30]
JAAYeah, just found a t.co -> ctt.ec -> tinyurl.com -> target one. [14:33]
JensHas science gone too far? [14:34]
