Change log:

1.2.3 Changed the url shorter to Bit.ly

1.2.2 Updated the password field to be type="password". Fixed some stability issues with tweeting. Updated the shortna.me api call.

1.2.1 Ver 1.2 broke the "Press This" Bookmarklet. It's now fixed. Thanks to @RobertBasil for catching this.

1.2 Added a few more checks to make sure the short url hash returns and gets tweeted. No longer tweets on page publishes. Cleaned up the options page.

1.1.3 Added checks to make sure that the user name and password are set before trying to tweet.
