I'm seeing a lot of URLs on my feed lately to or or similar, that redirect to another site. The first problem with these urls is that anyone who clicks these is giving data to Google. The bigger problem is that Google can turn them off.

If you care at all about an open Internet (I assume you do, because you're posting here and not Twitter), clean your URLs and stop giving Google control over what people can and cannot see online.
