Twitter Tiny URL service
There has been lots of talk lately about Twitter, TinyURL, and other URL shortening services. To me the solution is obvious....
- Twitter develops their own URL shortening service. Shouldn't be hard, such scripts can be purchased for $10...
- Twitter adjusts their software, so that when they check the length of any tweet, the first URL is counted as just 7 characters
- URLs embedded in tweets just appear like this uGT5ER7 - with the u denoting it is a Twitter short URL
- If Twitter also launched a browser toolbar, with a big button for Tweet This Page, which automatically embedded a short URL for the page you are visiting, then the process is complete
