friends don’t send friends links with utm codes at the end. delete that shit dawg

@hyperlink wait can you sincerely explain this to me pls lol

@psykhedelos yee so a lot of urls will have utm codes appended to the end. so it’ll be like mastodon.com/website&utm=blahblahblah. that utm is typically used to track information about users, like an ad campaign associated with the link, or where you found the link. simply erasing the & and everything after that sends an identical link but with less tracking information

@psykhedelos @hyperlink UTM codes are the part of the URL that indicate things like what site referred you or the codename for the advertising campaign

@jimpjorps @hyperlink ok! i thought so but wasn't sure! thank you for explaining this to me, i will def abide by this :)

@hyperlink weirdly Spotify web links are clean, but mobile doesn't, and i don't know why

@flussence @hyperlink what if someone made a shortlink service that injected randomized UTM params into whatever link they shortened

also it strips the referrer because lol no metrics or filtering for you

@hyperlink I love to share with junk UTM codes like fat_boners and fuck_you.
