Also, short URLs are evil - no-one knows where they're leading until they get there. They're a great way to encourage bad surfing practices and propagate viruses.

Yeah, I'd like to be able to hide youtube links, 12seconds etc (since facebook gets updated anyway).
On that note, I don't really want things like tweekly.fm updates to be posted to my status either.
Maybe it'd be easier to get tweetpo.st to have a simple ignore list, where we can fill out domains or keywords (to be ignored for status updates).
The way we get the full name is by looking up the user’s Real Name on Twitter, which isn’t split into first and last names (nor is it always there).
In theory if we added a ‘first names only’ setting, we could just post whatever we get from the Twitter Real Name up to the first space. But, that would probably result in a bunch of funky issues.
I was thinking it'd be good to be able to specify a short list of twitter usernames where you'd just like first name listed (eg wife, husband, best friend) and leave the rest as full names.
