After discovering that Twitter is
apparently replacing users’ iTunes affiliate links with its own affiliate link in iTunes previews on Twitter.com (see here and here), we figured we’d try to see if the same thing is happening with Amazon affiliate links. It is not.
For now, all of those Amazon affiliate marketers can keep tweeting links without worrying about Twitter stealing — or rather annexing — some of their thunder.
However, unless we are wrong — and the multiple people at Twitter we have contacted about this have yet to tell us that we are — it’s a different story.
