Morning tweets with thumbnails

As I read this morning through some of the people I follow on Twitter using my tweaked Witty that displays web page thumbnails for urls mentioned, I can’t help but wonder if maybe these thumbnails are…hmmm…too big?….provide enough information?….need to be layed out differently?


It is kind of interesting how many people are mentioning URLs though today–especially using tiny links of some kind.

Bob was suggesting that rather than these web page thumbnails that we go with a tooltip that shows the actual site url. That would at least give the idea of where the tiny url points to without paying the performance hit of retrieving the web page thumbnail for the url or having to deal with its rendering issues. After playing with the thumbnails for a little under two hours I’m giving this more thought–at least as an option.

Next up? I want to be able to past images into the InkCanvas and be able to mark them up with ink. Hmmm….
