Hyperlinks on twitter are automatically shortened due to limited characters, so they are sometimes distorted and don’t link correctly.

Posting links in a Tweet: https://support.twitter.com/articles/78124-posting-links-in-a-tweet#

All links (URLs) posted in Tweets are shortened using our t.co service. When viewing the Tweet on twitter.com the original URL (or shortened version of the original URL) will be displayed. Below are instructions on how to post a link in a Tweet on the web and on your mobile device.

How to post a link in a Tweet on the web:
1.Type or paste the URL into the Tweet box on twitter.com.
2. A URL of any length will be altered to 22 characters, even if the link itself is less than 22 characters long. Your character count will reflect this.
3.Click the Tweet button to post your Tweet and link.
