If question/answer title is unicode, which sets the url unicode - then, when I try to share with facebook/twitter it fails.
For example, the api request to twitter changes to, http://twitter.com/share?url=undefined&ref=twitbtn&text=%u0975 ...... and twitter sends 'This webpage is not found'
Is this an issue with askbot?

I had a similar problem some time ago. Please have a look here.
Probably, is not the best solution, but worked for me. Have a look on the second part of the answer where I am writing something about escaping characters.
I removed escaping, because when I tried to post greek questions (non latin characters) the url created was not valid (contained a lot of % because of escaping) and twitter sharing didnt work. Now it works.
Hope it helps
