WordPress 3.9 (code name “Smith”) is now available off the WordPress Website.

And all you have to do is fit it into 140 characters. Sheesh.
To meet that challenge, here are six tips I use for shortening Tweets while still saying something interesting and encouraging people to open another link. I’ve included examples of how to use these techniques. Continue reading
