Interesting article on Twitter rewriting some links to use their URL shortener

Alistair Croll speculates [1] on Twitter's possible efforts to 
rewrite/redirect links included in Tweets by using the [2] URL 
shortener.  Any URL shortener is to some degree in conflict with AWWW's 
advice on URI aliases [3].  Maybe or maybe not, as speculated in another 
presentation by Alistair, URLs are the new cookies.

Anyway, I think it would be good for the TAG to keep an eye on the growing 
use of URL shorteners.
