Here’s one for all you wordy blowhards out there who go totally nuts at Twitter’s 140 character limit. Yep, all you people that think that Tolstoy’s “War and Peace” is just a bit of casual light reading for a Sunday afternoon.
If you absolutely love to write on and on without any kind of restraint whatsoever, you now can! TinyPaste will give you a free text box in which to write your huge masterpiece unhindered and without any character limits. You can then post it online wherever you want.
So say you have a sudden overwhelming urge to post the US Declaration of Independence onto Twitter (what patriotic American doesn’t want to do that?). Just fire up TinyPaste and type in the words of the Founding Fathers into that box :
Then click the “submit” button and you end up with a TinyURL-type link. You can then post this link wherever you want to. Twitter, a website such as Friendfeed, an email, wherever you want :
Now whenever someone clicks on your link, they will be taken back to the TinyPaste page again and shown your full text :
So next time you want to have a rant online, just type or paste your literary masterpiece into TinyPaste and send everyone the link. There’s also a Firefox extension that lets you highlight text and send it straight to TinyPaste, which should prove to be quite useful for anyone that starts to use it on a regular basis.
