Embedded links are a bit broken on the web app (adding <br to the end)
I have noticed this for a few weeks, and was hoping it would get resolved, but now I am reporting it officially. There is a tiny bug in the web app, but it makes clickable links not work. Here is an example link I got from a Twitter message today: http://t.co/8lSPGRBguL<br that extra <br at the end is clearly not part of the link and it the root of the issue. I am guessing there is a typo somewhere.

As far as I can tell, this happens almost exclusively with Tweets forwarded to SMS if there are two or more URLs in the Tweet.. The linebreak ( <br ) between the two URLS ends up being appended to the first link when clicked on in the MightyText browser app. I can send myself a text with two links and a linebreak between them and it comes out fine in MightyText. It may be a problem with Twitter's formatting.
