A Twitter posting service which doesn't require direct Twitter password and supports t.co

I have a Twitter account where I have a contractor posting tweets, and I don't want to give the actual Twitter password. I can set up Hootsuite or Buffer so the contractor can post tweets without knowing the Twitter password because they instead know just the Hootsuite or Buffer details, and those accounts I've previously connected to Twitter. But those services use non-t.co shorteners (ow.ly and buff.ly, respectively). Hootsuite does support t.co if you include the full URL, but then it gets the character count wrong (it doesn't take into account that the link will be shortened).

So my question is, are there any other third-party tweeting services which (a) have their own login mechanism, so the twitter password doesn't have to be given out; (b) support t.co links; (c) get the character count right, i.e. take into account that longer links will be shortened by twitter.

As I had mentioned in the comments, Tweetdeck will work fine. It uses its own Authentication, but that's to store settings & sync across multiple devices. All Twitter apps must make use of oAuth, so once authenticated, you probably won't have to login to Twitter.

And the web client shows the expanded URL, doesn't use its own URL shortener so it'll be fine.
