If you browse Twitter on Safari, there’s a longstanding obnoxious bug where Safari won’t full resolve shortened t.co links. That results in an error message: “Safari can’t open the page because the server where this page is located is not responding.”
Good news, though. Apple’s finally going to fix it.
Even though the bug first exhibited itself last November, there’s been no official word up until now about why Safari chokes itself on t.co links. But now, an Apple engineer on Twitter says that the issue has been identified, and a fix is coming.
The engineer in question is Timothy Hatcher, WebKit Developer Experience Manager at Apple, who writes on Twitter:

Unfortunately, there’s no other ETA. Until Apple delivers an update, then, the only thing you can do is paste t.co links into another browser, like Chrome. Let’s hope Cupertino pushes the fix live soon.
