Bug Description

If a link in a tweet contains an ampersand in the expanded url part of the entity, the expanded url is not displayed when the short link is moused over.

eg:

@zefrank - pretty much the best business presentation ever :: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53_qvM...

When http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53_qvM... is moused over, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53_qvMQfvOE&feature=youtu.be should be displayed, but instead, the mouseover box contains nothing.

The attached image shows an example of mouseover working as expectec (on the left) and an example of mouseover not working properly (on the right). The full link on the right contains an '&', while the full link on the left does not. This behaviour occurs on all links (in any stream) where the full link contains an '&'.
