Ha, it's working nice en smooth so far and quicker than Twitterfeed. Just published an item and Feedburner posted the message pretty quick, the URL was [PersonRank 10]

Wow, my next item I published was posted within 2 to 3 minutes.

It seems that Google post on Twitter every time a item updates. So now I have four tweets for one article :-).

Lets hope Google introduces this service – with as added feature password protected URLs – for Google Docs. There are many users that would love that for forms, shared documents without the need to sign in and published documents.

There's an unofficial Chrome extension for that. [PersonRank 10]

Related to the extension for Chrome.

"Create Google Short URLs without the Toolbar."

<<Or, if you are using a browser other than Chrome, you can use this online service to shring URL of any web page through>>

The geekgen server might be useful if it worked correctly.
It has trouble with ampersands, which occur in many long urls.

A request for

produces a short url that redirects to
