David Friedman over at Ironic Sans has turned one of his great ideas into a reality with Thsrs.

Thsrs is a simple (on the surface) web application which attempts to do for words what services such as TinyURL do for hyperlinks, providing shorter synonyms to help folks keep Twitter messages at or under 140 characters. Sure, it's a niche app, and likely only to be used by those few tweeters who stretch the bounds of their alloted message space. But it's creative thinking like this that moves the internet forward.

It's still in its infancy, so it's not perfect, but it's a sweet idea for now.
