I would like to discuss the tweet:

Solidarity in #diversity is key to powering up the #climate change movement http://t.co/FwC3S46olo by @tmyoungman > inspiring


I has an embedded link to a marketing scheme and 'unknown' classification is not appropriate.

It's clickbait.

Hi marmot

Do you mind me asking how you find that out? I didn't manage to get far enough with the url to reach any conclusion and probably would have just opted for unknown. I don't tweet - so the //t.co format was unfamiliar to me, but I gather it's a url shortener twitter uses. The @tm... etc gets me to a page that says I have to be a confirmed follower to access any tweets - and I'm not. Is that the clickbait, or is there something I've missed? Thanks.
