This morning, I was reminded of the very helpful application I started using only last week - from TinyURL.com.
I've used TinyURLs forever - and now they're the best to use on Twitter - but last week I finally noticed the 'Make Toolbar Button'. Bet that's been there a long while, but I guess I am often in a hurry. And, I'm very much a 'if it's not broke, don't fix it' person - there are so very many things in the world that really need fixing after all. But the other day I did decide to press that button and I've been so grateful ever since. Easy, easy TinyURLs - and all for free! Bless that TinyURL developer, Kevin Gilbertson!

TinyURL.com - just copy or enter a long URL into the text field and a 'tiny URL' will be created, one that won't break in email postings, won't take up precious room in your Twitter updates, and it never expires either: http://tinyurl.com
