To me this problem of mine seems so simple. I've got say, 100 followers on Twitter. If I tweet:
Check out my book. http://amzn.to/1adU4Li #kindle
My 100 followers see it and since it's a link they can click on it. Everything is copacetic. BUT they are only 100 people and they are all doing the same thing as me (marketing). So we re-tweet each other and commiserate and as far as that goes it's all good. But still we are only 100 people!
Now, what should happen is my tweet should go to my stream yes, but ALSO to the #kindle stream, where there are zillions of tweets. Tweets mostly by writers granted, but the stream is also being looked at by zillions of people with kindles looking for a good read. But my tweet does not get into the #kindle stream.
So yes, my tweet gets seen by my 100 followers, and their followers if they retweet my tweet, but the great big ocean of #kindle I am shut out of. (And others are not!)
And lastly, the same tweet as described above WITHOUT the http://amzn.to/1adU4Li goes to my stream of followers AND the #kindle stream.
In other words, yes, Twitters computers have deemed me a spammer (of a certain degree) and have shortened the leash I'm on by disallowing my tweets with shortened links to my ebooks go through to the hashtag streams. (Now if I have a tweet with a link to a major magazine or something, it will go through normally to my stream and the hash tag stream.)
Additionally, anything I tweet through Buffer does not get through to anything. Like I said, it seems they're tightening the leash on me.

Looking for your last one, tried to find in a couple of tagstreams, but there are 3 possible tagstream views...
1. HOT - this is the default view, so if it doesn't make it to "hot", it won't show
Found it in #freeebook under "all", in the others, I'm not scrolling that far.
Twitter may be prioritizing or despamming based on text versus link, so too little or generic text and a link may be treated as linkspam. If the link is killed by the #, then it's treated as a post with no link.
