A lot of people I know are twitterholics and I believe the way things are going I might also become one of them. Some of the people have also started to use it as one medium where they can discuss or have a communication around social media because it’s usually the social media guys who you’d see making most noise on Twitter or for that matter friendfeed. In these situations one often feels the need of 140 character limit annoying. I dugg for some twitter based application and services which can bypass the 140 character limit or shorten your messages on twitter.
TinyPaste is TinyURL for text. It allows you to write as much as you can and when you are done, it gives you a tinypaste URL which you can tweet. Your twitter followers can access your message on the tinypaste URL you tweet. If you like this one then you might like to check out its Firefox extension as well.
Twitzer is a Firefox extension which shortens your long twitter messages. After installing this Firefox extension, you can write post or whatever you want to rant on Twitter and if you have crossed the character limit then all the additional text will be replaced with a shorttext link which on clicking will show the full message to the readers inside the browser.
140it is another similar web service where you can shrink your tweets but it uses less effective approach by removing the extra spaces and turning well-embodied words into sound-similar but grammatically absurd clones. The sms loving folks who have made a big dent in the queen’s lingo (oops) would love it.
Tweetshrink is another twitter app which shrinks your twitter messages in SMS way but giving it a try you’d know that it is better at handling text than 140it while I am impressed with its website. Tweetdeck users would be interested to know that that Tweetshrink is integrated with Tweetdeck for some time now.
Twitlonger is just another way to let you post to Twitter when you need more than 140 characters to express yourself. You can write what you need and a link to what you said will automatically be posted to Twitter when you are sending messages with Twitlonger.
