HFU links
« on: September 03, 2016, 1432 UTC »
Since last evening the HFU shortened Google links don't work from the Twitter feed. When clicking the link I get,

this goo.gl shortlink has been disabled. It was found to be violating our Terms of Service.


I posted this here as this is where I expect someone will see it.

So, is it just me or is anyone else having this problem?

I see it as well, I have no idea why Google is doing this. I requested a review to see if they will restore it. Maybe others can as well.

Thanks for the replies so at least I know it's just not my phone or PC.

I sent them a couple review request last night and this morning. This is apparently pretty wide spread from what I can find out on the Google group for shortlinks. Just a lot of complaining with no real answers.
