Ever fed up with the copy and paste work adding a URL link to your Twitter’s tweet? Student coder Gricode has made a simple bookmarklet to make your life easier. He describes it as a “Twitter + tinyURL bookmarklet”. Here are the steps to get it working from your own browse, using the original bullets from Gricode:
- Simply drag the following link onto your bookmarks tab: twitterLink
- Woot, you’re done!
- Now, whenever you’re on a site that you would like to post on your twitter, simply click your newly created twitterLink button
- You will be taken to twitter with a tiny url link already “pre-typed” for you 🙂
Here is a screen capture showing how the tool “pre-typed” and tinyurl link for you on Twitter:
It is a simple yet handy tool deserve a position on your bookmarks tab. Well done Gricode!
