As you can see on the image above, the links are posted as links on Twitter since I’m using IFTTT FREE service to help me post automatically on Twitter on my behalf each and every time I publish a new post on my website.

Having Emoji 😣 on 🌐URL is the cause of page not found

After my observation, the issue happened only to my posted links with emoji(s) on them. For any links posted and published without any emoji on the URL, Twitter doesn’t have issue redirect them to my website.
