UnShorten wordpress plugin

As you can see from the front page, I put all my tweets on my wordpress blog with twitter-tools. One problem that I have with this is all the shortened links I use like su.pr. I want blog readers to see the full link like I do when I’m using Brizzly.
So I’ve written a plugin to do it for me as I can’t find anything else out there. It uses http://therealurl.appspot.com/ to shorten the url
So here it is: UnShorten plugin.

  • I use this plugin regularly without issue

  • Hey John – cool plugin! I’m the author of TheRealURL, would love to get in touch with you and hear your feedback on TheRealURL, how it works for you etc. Please feel free to drop me a line at niryariv@gmail.com. Cheers!

    Thanks for your comment. I think therealurl works great for me and this little app. I really appreaciate the work you’ve done in making the way of expanding the urls and I hope it’s useful to other people too!

    This is useful!  Next step is to find something that will make the edits to the actual post, in case one (for example) ur1.ca ever goes down, I’ll still have the original sources.
