Twitter Compressor

Thursday, April 16, 2009 { 1 Comments }

How much time you needed just one more character when you tweet? Always when I must transmit something important at twitter it is always more than 140 characters. Damn Murphy Laws!

Solution/s?

The solution is simple: Capitalization and Compression

Example:

RT @ArthurRimbaud: And everything grows, and everything rises!

RT @ArthurRimbaud: AndEverythingGrows,AndEverythingRises!

Yes this solution will not produce pretty readable text, but if we have a tiny url (who doesn’t tell much what you are clicking) why not use something like compressed text.

I built one small application that will compress and capitalize your text and will leave the spaces if you have: http:// , # or @.
