Twitter Tip

I just did an experiement: The site makes short urls. For example, the string leads straight back here.

You can paste the stort string in a twitter post. Twitter will make the shortened URL hot.

Twitter makes any string beginning with www. hot. If you replace the "http://" with "www."

The new link seems to work and you save three characters ... which is important in a world limited to 140 characters.

PS: I am not with and can not guarantee that this hack will work forever. (Back to twitter (twitter links).
