Trib.al blocked on 1.1.1.2

New York Times, Economist, and many others use trib.al link shortener when posting on Facebook, Twitter, etc. The 1.1.1.2 service gives out no IP for that record, producing a sort of mini news blackout…

I noticed the same issue over past 2 days. How do we report this to get it corrected?

Cloudflare categorizes Trib.al as unknown category.

Hi,

I work at SocialFlow and we run the trib.al link shortener which is used by publishers around the world, as mentioned above. This issue is affecting a number of our clients. Please let us know next steps to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.
