    Amazon/Twitter not allowing affiliate ID in tweets?
    haven't had that problem before, but today, when i try to tweet a link with my amazon affiliate tag in it, the link got broken off and my affiliate ID was not hyperlinked. For example i tweeted this link:
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0026BNSCI/ref=nosim/myaffiliateid-20

    but only http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0026BNSCI/ was hyperlinked, and my aff id was left out!

    anyone else noticed this?

    Haven't tried tweeting an Amazon link, but just send it through a URL shortener (provided shorteners don't replace aff IDs for Amazon, which I don't think they do) and post the shortened link.

    ok, it's not twitter or amazon, it's the link itself. i tried another way to created amazon affiliated links, and it works fine.
