When I'm signed in to Twitter.com in Safari, there's a high likelihood that visiting twitter.com/someusername or a t.co link will fail.
80% of the time I do this, in Safari, the site fails to load, or sputters for a minute before finally loading.
When the site loads, or the redirect works, it's fast. If I delete the cookie, it's fast. Signing back in again, though, is slow.
It's just Safari. I can visit the same link while signed in to twitter.com from Chrome, or Firefox, and it works fine.
What's going on?
