Lately, I have seen that Tweetdeck/Twitter has started to track clicks on links by replacing links with a based URL link. Is it possible to turn of this so that when you click a link you go directly to the link instead of getting tracked by Twitter?

No, the link shortening is an API feature of the twitter API & cannot be turned off.

Do you know if the links are unique pr. user pr. link or is it only unique pr. link? – grm Jun 14 '11 at 11:11
