Twitter adds redirection to all shared links to learn what links you click. This extension removes Twitter's redirection to protect your privacy.
Thanks to how twitter handles redirection under-the-hood, this extension is also able to remove redirection from many third-party URL shorteners (e.g.: bit.ly, on.cnn.com, amzn.to, 4sq.com, omg.fac and many more) without having to dereference them.
As a side-effect, all links will load faster as they are no longer passed to Twitter or third-party redirection servers.
To improve performance, the redirections are fixed only when you mouseover links.
This extension is open source software. The source code can be accessed at https://github.com/born2c0de/twitter-redirect-fixer
