Shorten URLs in TextExpander

If your Twitter client doesn't automatically shorten URLs for you, you can use TextExpander to shrink those long links to tweetable lengths. First, add the Internet Productivity group by choosing File > Add Predefined Group > Internet Productivity Snippets. Then, to shorten a URL using a service like TinyURL, copy the destination URL to the clipboard, and type the abbreviation /tinyurl to insert the shortened URL at the insertion point.

TidBITS 2002 Holiday Hiatus

Send Article to a Friend

TidBITS 2002 Holiday Hiatus -- This marks our last issue of 2002, and we're all looking forward to a few weeks off with friends and family during the holiday season. As always, my heartfelt thanks to the many people who make our mission with TidBITS possible: Tonya, Geoff, Jeff, Matt, and Mark; our corporate sponsors and Internet hosts; our authors and contributors; our selfless volunteer translators, everyone who participates in TidBITS Talk, and most important, everyone who reads TidBITS regularly and thus gives meaning to our work. The next issue will appear 06-Jan-03, as many of us gather in San Francisco for Macworld Expo. Let me leave you, then, with the hope that your holidays live up to all that you wish them to be.
