Seems related to this change: https://github.com/EFForg/privacybadger ... b09b52e619

It appears that Privacy Badger will now inject a special content script for pages from twitter.com. Looking at this content script, the purpose is to unwrap the links so as to avoid Twitter from tracking what link you clicked. Good feature.
