Google announced yet another piece of infrastructure service that are offered already by many other services. This time Google offers an URL shortener service under the url In context of this new service Google also offers now an automatic tweets from your Google Feedburner RSS feed.
Until now we used no URL shortener as is very short already and we do not use very long page names. We used the Twitter API to post tweets from within our CMS system. But with a couple button clicks we now use URL shortener and the Twitter interface to let Google handle it from now on.

The new Google service work right away. There is still a slight delay from when a tweet appears and the Feedburner RSS link is available. Google needs to fix that as the first users in Twitter clicking on the tweet link on our Twitter feed get a Feedburner error page.
