Twitter has been working on a bunch of features to make Twitter easier to use. In this matter, the microblogging company today, releasing -- "automatic link shortening" on Twitter.com.

"How does it work?
Just paste a link of any length into the Tweet box on Twitter.com. After you've composed your Tweet and you hit the "Tweet" button, we'll shorten the link so that it only takes up 19 characters.

What's in it for me?
Sharing links on Twitter.com is now simple and instant. Plus, since we show a shortened version of the original link, people will know which site the link points to. This service also increases security. If users click links that are reported as malicious, we direct them to a page that warns them.

What if I want analytics for my links?
You can continue to use your favorite third-party link shortening services," explained Twitter.

In a news related to twitter, Twitter is now available in Brazilian Portuguese.

"After adding the language to translation center, it was fully translated in only three days, making this translation project Twitter's fastest yet," Twitter stated.
