Doesn’t twitlonger defeat the point of twitter? Twitter is supposed to be brief. And I could try to shorten what I want to say to a tweet (or series of tweets) or I could just expand it into a blog post.
The point is I don’t want to click a link only to read something slightly longer than a tweet.
I think twitlonger missed the mark. I don’t think there is a niche where they have placed themselves. From twitlonger’s site, “People that are interested can click on the link and see the full majesty of your wit and wisdom.” To me wit is short (a tweet) and wisdom is elaborated upon (a blog post). Disagree?
