Aug 12, 2010 Twitter URL shortener

Twitter is using a new official link shortening service to wrap all links shared on Twitter with The new Tweet Button, which was officially unveiled by Twitter earlier today. But this shortening is only for the pop-up tweet box, and it’s going to help Twitter crack down on spam, as the service will be able to accurately monitor the distribution of each link, and it can warn users when it thinks a link may be malicious.
