Scripting News: Twitter, day 2: "if ever an app cried out for bundling the functionality of Tinyurl, this is it." Dave doesn't know we already have that feature in Twitter because we don't document it anywhere. (Doh! We'll do that today.)
Here's how that works: If you put a link into Twitter that is 30 characters or longer (or is really obscure with lots of ?'s and whatnot) then we automatically tiny-url it.
Also, Dave said, "I find myself thinking of Twitter as an adjunct to this site." Awesome!
