When i click Twitter's shorten link, Opera freezing for 5 seconds and unfreeze. It happens on both Opera stable 43.0.2246.121183 and Opera beta 44.0.2246.121943. This bug does not affect Google Chrome 61.

@torss confirmed on O43 stable. The same happens when you vistit Google URL shortener https://goo.gl
I already reported it and I was told that the dev team will do something about it.
Looks like your connection to Opera forums was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
