Shrinking links on twitter

And friend me already on facebook
what a linky post, oh well you’ll get over it!
EDIT: New secret hack accidentally discovered! A blogger who shall remain nameless recently added gross photos to her or his blog, so I have avoided going there. But I wanted to read a post so I shut off photos [Firefox: Tools->Options-> Content-> UNCHECK Load Images Automatically (somehow adding the domain to exceptions and blocking didn’t work- will investigate later)]
Then I still had images off and went back to twitter, and how cool is this? Instead of avatars, I got a list of names for the followers, not cut & pasteable but I’m working on it.

OK I found a new toy for twitter which I like better than the facebook apps
a firefox extension called twitterbug
