If you get an "Unable to verify referring url.

Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

"Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential frontrunner, knocked  $15bn from the value of US biotech stocks on Monday by pledging to take  on “outrageous” price-gouging in the pharmaceuticals industry.'Price gouging like this in the speciality drug market is outrageous.  Tomorrow I’ll lay out a plan to take it on,' Mrs Clinton wrote in a  tweet, referring to a company that hiked the price of a medicine for a  form of parasitic infection from $13.50 to $750 overnight."
