Shorter WordPress blog post URLs for microblogging

| April 25, 2009 | Leave a Comment

No need to send your blog post URLs through a URL shortener like TinyURL or bit.ly because you can just use WordPress’ built-in system! Here’s proof.

Remember Marghil’s “Plurk This” code for WordPress? It takes advantage of the post_ID permalink to use the shortest post URLs as possible, since in microblogging, every character saved counts.

Plus, since you’re using your own blog URL, followers will know exactly where your link is going, increasing the chances of their clicking on it.

Something to remember next time you promote your latest blog post on Twitter or Plurk.
