Attention Internet Explorer Users!!

November 14th, 2013

Until Twitter fixes its URL direct message bug, we are using a format that has three slashes after the http. Here is an example: http:///———

If you paste this into Firefox, Chrome or Safari, those browsers will recognize that there is an extra slash (“/”), and will correctly process the link.

Unfortunately, Internet Explorer does not. Meaning if you are using Internet Explorer, you will have to manually remove one of the slashes after you have pasted the link.

Once Twitter resolves their issue with URLs in direct messages, we will immediately switch back to a normal link, with none of the copy/paste hoo ha.

We appreciate your patience in this matter.

Twitter Says A ‘Technical Issue’ Is Preventing URLs From Being Sent In Direct Messages For Some

October 17th, 2013

From Tech Crunch:

“Earlier this afternoon Twitter users began experiencing difficulty sending URLs or ‘links’ via Direct Message. Depending on the client used, error messages popped up that indicated the DMs being sent included links to ‘malware’, or simply indicated that the message could not be sent.”

This is what is impacting the validation links in TrueTwit’s DMs. Hopefully, Twitter will have this issue resolved soon. Very soon.
