Have you ever wanted to make a tweet, but couldn’t quite squeeze it down to 140 characters? That’s one of the biggest reasons why I don’t use the service, because I generally have more than a sentence or two to say when I want to broadcast my thoughts (which is rare enough as it is). Well if you want to be free of the 140 character shackles, you might consider using ShortText.
ShortText is a service that allows you to write out up to 30,000 words, and publish them with a short URL. There’s no need to setup an account, and people can even comment on what you publish, if they choose. You can then take that link and publish it to your Twitter feed. This lets you post a long message to your followers without setting up a formal blog, or being limited to 140 characters. Seems like a useful site to me.
