Tracking My Links

I hate when you see a link that reveals how my behaviour is being tracked.

I clicked a link from Twillio and saw this:

http://signal.twilio.com/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=EVCONF&utm_campaign=Twilio-Presents-Signal-Conference—Early-Bird-Pricing-Now-Available-20150108&utm_content=custom&elq=~~eloqua..type–emailfield..syntax–recipientid~~&elqCampaignId=~~eloqua..type–campaign..campaignid–0..fieldname–id~~.

I hate that. I feel like all my activities is laid bare.

The link could have been this short:

http://signal.twilio.com/

Now you see how much has been tagged on. Did you think I wouldn’t notice? People notice this stuff. Even if they don’t know what it’s doing, they notice it.

It creeps me out.
