If you noticed Twitter lately, that most of the short links are being replaced by Twitter’s own t.co. If you happen to tweet a shortened link using one of the lesser known URL shorteners like mine, uly.me, it will be rewritten by Twitter. It’s quite annoying if you ask me, mainly because you lose part of your own identity when you tweet. Anyways, the reasoning behind Twitter’s action is really about control, analytics and security. I get all that, but I prefer to use my own link. Dammit. Anyways. you can read more about Twitter’s action here.
