Hi there Darragh,

This is not all. I also said that Long URL Please is one of 5 essential or must-have Twitter tools for 2009! :)

I think this is a valuable tool, but I do think you have missed the boat a bit here. Short urls are used because twitter has a character limit on posts. Most URLs are too long and would restrict your ability to post a comment with a link.

I do agree that there are some nefarious short url users out there, but by and large people are just trying to save space.
