Web developers are coming up with new tools to help Twitterers make the most of their 140 character limit. Thsrs (the shortened version of thesaurus) takes a long word you want to use, and searches for shorter synonyms. How cool!
If that doesn’t help you shop it down, 140it certainly will. Granted, it also may make you sound like a teenage girl’s text messages (txts).
And while we don’t recommend trying to maneuver a foreign language you’re unfamiliar with– there’s a lot of sub-context and cultural background to be taken into account– if you need to briefly tweet in another language, Twinslator might be a helpful tool.
While you’re on there, follow or mention us @AffordableLang. We’d love to hear from you!
