“Bloomberg’s report credits “a person familiar with the matter” in claiming that Twitter posts will soon begin serving links and images that do not eat into a post’s 140-character limit. The report’s source indicated that the change could happen “in the next two weeks” but was unable to offer any firmer timeline. Currently, Twitter automatically shortens any URL or uploaded image into a link that takes up approximately 21 characters.”

From a security stand point, it would be nice if Twitter left URLs alone. I’ve always been a bit uneasy about shorteners that hide the true location of a link, even as we all use them, mostly because of Twitter. 😉
