TextExpander TinyURL time saver

TextExpander is a typing shortcut utility (for the Mac) that saves me time. I just discovered that the software has a TinyURL shortcut that I find to be really useful.

Let’s say you want to email a website link to somebody that looks like this:


If I Copy the URL from my web browser then type the shortcut /tinyurl in my email program (or any program), TextExpander will send the URL to TinyURL, get a shorter version of that URL and insert it into my email program as http://tinyurl.com/6omh86.

I’m not a heavy Twitter user but if you are, you’ll find this shortcut to be invaluable.
