Ever since digging slightly around the retweet.com debacle I discovered the rt.nu URL Shortener. A great domain and most of all a really short URL. Perfect for Twitter you would think. So why doesn’t Retweet.com use its own shorturl service? Nothing more than a quick look at the service’s popular links is needed to understand why.
‘Slightly’ spammy to say the least (click the image for full-size view). So much for a really buggy (and rather slow) copycat service.
