Kathy Golden | 127 comments I was sent this article today, stating that traffic driven to KS via a short link doesn't count toward page views. The nomination counts but not the page view. So if your tweets have short links, they won't generate page-view traffic. Has anyone else heard about this?

James Paddock (jameswriter) | 52 comments Interesting. That would certainly explain why I get no stats from Twitter where you almost have to use short links.

Kathy Golden | 127 comments Yes, I had some tweets created for someone with the short links also. I'm going to redo them with the long URL and see if it makes a difference.

Yes, someone on the KBoards said that his was showing up also. The article saying they didn't work was about 6-months old. Either the author just thought they didn't show up or KS has been updated so that they do. Still, I'm going to go with long links whenever I can.
