[Plugin: Tweet Old Post] Adding a shortlink URL shortener option? (4 posts)

    Hey Athay,

    Thanks for this great plugin. Any chance of adding a shortlink option to the URL shortner menu so that links are posted in the shortlink format even if pretty permalinks are enabled on the blog. i.e.:
    http://buildyourblog.net/?p=123

    Thanks again,
    Graham

    When I tweet a post with Tweet Old Post without link shortening, it uses the full permalink path like this:
    http://buildyourblog.net/email/mailpress/mailpress-enhancement-bug-fix-wishlist

    I'd like an option to use the shortlink that looks like this instead:
    http://buildyourblog.net/?p=841

    Have a look at the most recent two tweets here to see the difference; the most recent is from Simple Twitter Connect, and the next is from Tweet Old Post.

    It's just aesthetics as Twitter shortens the link with t.co anyway...

    Cheers,
    Graham

    Yes, please. I would really like this option.

    Using WordPress as a URL shortener will send URLs to Twitter in the default URL format for WordPress: http://domain.com/wpdir/?p=123

    So we get the above link instead of: http://domain.com/2012/02/a-big-long-title-for-my-link-here/

    Thanks,
    Ruby
