  • Someday tweets will allow you to link from words to any web page on the internet.#
  • You will be able to give a tweet a title.#
  • You can already style text bold or italic. They kind of snuck that in there quietly? #
  • I'd like to see them support Markdown.#
  • You can edit your tweets for up to an hour. That's pretty good imho.#
  • Twitter is basically checking off the boxes on the Textcasting vision.#
  • I wonder if their competitors are noticing.#
  • Also a nice RSS feed coming out of Twitter?#
  • And let me enclose an MP3 for a podcast.#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
