Plugin Request: Custom Link Share (1 post)

    Hello coders. I would really like a custom link sharing plugin that would allow visitors to share my blog posts on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites but with a custom link structure. Most sharing plugins use bit.ly or shar.it or some outside service. The idea is to combine the custom link structure as one acquires from Link Shortcut (for example, turning http://www.myblog.com/blah/2010/01/blah/blah/blah-123 into http://myblog.com/rt43shd8) with the ease of a one-click button. Thus when the user clicks on the "Share on Twitter" button, the link goes to http://twitter.com/home?status=My+Blog+Post+http%3A%2F%2Fmyblog.com%2F rt43shd8. This code opens the user's twitter page with the status filled out, including the custom shortened link to my blog. The idea is similar to the custom link share buttons used on posts at Gawker.com and the like.

    Please let me know if it's possible. Thanks!
