11. Logical question ... Youtube is apparently a 'special case' to the DU software ...

You can see however by clicking the first link (sj.com) above that the 'parameters' are passed to the server in that case (hence the content of the address bar when you arrive at the newspaper site), and that is most definitely *normally* 'the case' with DU ... except in what I believe are 'custom-handled' URL's ... like those that point at Youtube in it's various formations.

Very logical question though



ppl who own twitter stock might frizz out but the rest of us thank you lol nt msongs Jan 2019 #1
What looks ugly to me is a link from Twitter that has 2, 3, or even more of the same tweet. Hoyt Jan 2019 #2
My guess on that one is a bug in the DU software, not something that the poster of the link has mr_lebowski Jan 2019 #8
Thanks. I wondered what caused it. Hoyt Jan 2019 #9
That happens when someone posts the links to *replies* to an original tweet.. Princess Turandot Jan 2019 #12

Catch more flies with honey? The message was actually helpful, the headline was not - so maybe seaglass Jan 2019 #20
I am perfectly willing to accept the assessment that I'm being annoying anal :) mr_lebowski Jan 2019 #21
Those URL strings don't "pay" Twitter. It's tracking code the publication uses. jpljr77 Jan 2019 #23
