Twitter URL Shortener

I generated a URL under this new blog that is shorter than the URL generated by Twitter under the t.co shortener.  The link that was listed on the tweet was the itu.nu link, but the url link was a t.co link which was longer than the link generated by my blog (which then forwards to the itg.nu page).

Update:
This is the link for this page: https://itg.nu/88109
This is the link Twitter creates:https://t.co/LxYKKY5g

Update 2:
Every post/update generates an error w/ the plugin I post blog entries to Twitter w/ cause my URLs are shorter than Twitter’s shortlinks. (=

Can you say webserver?  Laptop for a HS or college student?  Child’s first personal computer?  For $200, its a better deal then buying them a game system.  Better yet, there is a lot of free open source software.  If you look at the menus, they even come with OpenOffice which can read/write MS Office files up to 2003.

I think if these work out, they might actually give Linux and other Unix based OS’ a real foothold.
