How Can I Avoid Duplicate Campaign Names in Analytics > Acquisition > Campaigns > All Campaigns

The issue I have is using a UTM link to track a campaign which results in duplicate campaign names in the Analytics > Acquisition > Campaigns > All Campaigns report.

 

Here is a working example:

 

Website URL: http://www.thisisjustanexample.com/language/category/brand/productname

Campaign Source: Twitter

Campaign Medium: Social

Campaign Name: have+you+seen+the+click+turn

 

Resulting URL using Google URL builder:

 

http://www.thisisjustanexample.com/language/category/brand/productname?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium...

 

I then input this into Buffer which shortens the URL (although I have tried direct and the same problem occurs).

 

Then in the Analytics > Acquisition > Campaigns > All Campaigns report, the campaign name is duplicated as follows:

have you seen the click turn
have you seen the click turn/
have you seen the click turn/?mob=1/

Why is this happening and is there a solution? I am assuming it is something to do with visitors arriving on the website page and it having a different URI depending on how they arrive there, e.g. with a trailing slash or I assume if they come from a mobile device with the mob string which it is then - for some reason - adding to the campaign name.

If anyone has a solution to avoid this and have only 1 result it would be helpful.

Thanks,
Paul
