Bad HTML breaks social features

It seems that an item that was shared by someone I follow has bad HTML (opening anchor tag with no closing tag). This means any of the social tools follow the link in the broken anchor tag.

[" rel="nofollow" target="\_blank" title="Link httpredirectviglinkcomkey11fe087258b6fc0532a5ccfc924805c0ampuhttps3A2F2Fgithubcom2FValveSoftware2Fsteam-for-linux2Fissues2F3671"\>](<a href=);&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 
If you click anyehere in the highlighted area you will follow the link that does not have a closing tag (instead of say leaving a comment)

Looks like a one-time thing, as the feed shows “Something went wrong”.

I do have story rewriting, but I’m not sure why it failed in this case.

Yeah, first time I have seen this so can’t say it is something common. Just thought I would mention it.
