When URLs are shortened, the tracking parameter for a Social Campaign is appended into the link.

There are certain URLs outside of Social that will break when a CID or other tracking parameter is appended to it. Not sure of the feasibility, but the user is requesting that we input a sort of predictor tool that would indicate if a given URL is accepting of tracking parameter appendage, or if it will break.

 

An example of a URL that breaks:
