Is there such thing of a 140 character article rewriter tool?
Well you would just need to take the first 140 characters of the article then just pump it into an article rewriter.
Wouldn't be too difficult.
No tools that I know of at this point. shm03 has hit it on the head -- take "x" number of characters as a teaser then append a url to the post.
If you can keep the url a consistent length then you know the number of characters for the teaser.
All said it is a straight forward parsing script in pretty much any language -- perl, php, sed, etc.
oh my god...is it really that hard to write 140 characers from your own brain???
If you have 100 accounts and you are making 5 updates a day then you are talking about 500 * 140 chars = 70,000 characters. At that point an auto tool may make some sense.
If you only have 2 accounts and you want a rewriter -- well -- then you are just plain lazy.
Separate names with a comma.
