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.

We can't be the only ones asking ourselves: is it really November already? We've had a busy year, and as we push toward the end of 2008 and prepare for Macworld Expo in January, we're going to recuperate next week and celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States.

We won't be asleep the entire time, of course - we just can't help ourselves. We'll no doubt continue to post to the TidBITS Web site. Check back at the site or subscribe to the our RSS feed or Twitter stream to keep up with everything we're writing.
