Twitter Direct Links

Here you can get support and ask questions about Twitter Direct Links Opera extension.
TwiDL removes redirects and url shorteners from links in Twitter timeline.
Twitter often knows, where link points directly and shows this info in link tooltip.
But when you click a link you'll 1st browse to twitter's own url shortener "t.co", after
to other shortener(s) and finally reach the page.
Twitter Direct Links extension allow you to jump directly to the destination page on click.
Processed links underlined with green dashed line (configurable) and display Link Hint on hover.
TwiDL can extract up to four links from a tweet:
(1) As is link (usually "t.co/...").
(2) If possible, link displayed in tweet itself (e.g. opera.com).
(3) Corrected destination link (see description below).
(4) Raw destination link from tooltip.
Normally (1) is used. With TwiDL (3) will be used. It's derived from (4) by removing tailing slash,
which is often misplaced.
If default link don't work or you want to use other, just hover link for 1 (configurable) second
and Link Hint will appear.
BTW: Twitter Direct Links extension improving your privacy by avoiding links tracking
+ The fastest way: Tweet @zxcat with #oTwiDL.
+ Comments on this page.
+ The slowest: comment on extension page.
- Default link sometimes can be wrong (but you can always use other from Link Hint).
- Only timeline links (and some other) are processed. Sidebar links can be skipped.
