 �also known as Tweetburner. This is a handy little Twitter tool to have bookmarked. Sometimes that 140 character limit (Twitter tweet limit) puts a whole new spin on precision. To help you along, Tweetburner shrinks your LONG URLs into tiny urls or rather twurls.

Example: CMS Watch has many interesting articles, but their URLs are LONG!

http://www.cmswatch.com/Trends/1515-Ingres,-Alfresco-and-an-ECM-appliance?source=RSS   (84 characters)

But once you Tweetburn it: http://twurl.nl/bl6iam   (22 characters)


 Just a note: the profile and stats pages on Tweetburner have some issues � but what you really need is up and running!
