So I checked the Twitter account I update with a daily wallpaper using their API today, and apparently since the 17th of November Twitter has just been including the real links instead of the bi.ly shortened versions.

I checked the source, the links are actually there.
Albeit with the nofollow gimmick attached.

I thought Twitter was bad with the spam before, but I might quit reading notification emails from Twitter all together after seeing this.

Looks like someone screwed something up somewhere. They've started showing the entire links to readers now, but they're creating broken links.
