Are you perplexed by the protractedness of your vocabulary? Well there’s a tool that can help with that: Thsrs, the little thesaurus that shrinks your profound words into tweetable nuggets.
There’s nothing worse than getting to the end of a tweet and seeing that you’re three characters over the 140 character limit. What do you do? Commit grammar atrocities by rmving vwls? No need!
Just visit Thsrs and enter the longer words in your tweet. You’ll get a list of suitable synonyms that are all shorter than your original 10-dollar word.
Say, using the example above, I chose “wasteful” instead of “extravagant” when describing some celebrity’s spending habits. That change would save me three characters – not a ton by itself, but do this a few times in an overly-long tweet and you’ll be able to fit even the most complex thoughts in 140 characters or less.
With this little tool, you don’t have to commit grammar suicide, nor change the meaning of your tweets. You simply get more spare characters for your efforts.
Do you think you’ll use Thsrs? What’s the first word you’ll shrink? Let us know in the comments below.
