Extending Your Tweets Beyond the 140 Character LimitMost of the time, 140 characters are enough for a good tweet. If you're like me though, you can't always string together a coherent thought in that amount of space.
After one such occurrence, I decided it would be great if there was a web based application that would allow you to write an extended tweet. The web application would automatically create a short URL for tweets over 140 characters, and then post your message to twitter in a user selectable length that included the short link to the full message.
Well, like usual, I was a little late to the party. After a quick search, I found many services that would do something like this already. Rather than try to re-invent the wheel, I decided to use this site as a pointer to help you find some cool 140+ services.
Web Services for Longer Tweets
@WilliamIsted, TwitPlus lets you easily create messages longer than 140 characters. TwitPlus automatically adds a link to your tweet if you go over Twitter's 140 character limit. The service works great. Give it a try! TwitPlus also offers an iPad and iPhone app.
