how does augmentation-links links-hops resolve the intermediate links? is the original link being followed by simulating a user click or some other method? Thanks!
We simply use cURL to resolve each link hop. The exact method we use to resolve each link can be different depending on how the link has been shortened, , if the link can be normalized, etc. Lorenzo, our Chief Technical Architect, has written a great blog post about how we perform our links resolution : Bitly, DataSift and Links Resolution.
