Rob, some of the transient "disposable shit" you throw at social media outlets will stick at a wall somewhere, as persistent link that's clickable, crawlable, searchable, visible for ages. I know you want to rethink your statement, and you'll make use of more reliable URIs in the future. ;-)

Seems that the mentality of most is that, since their shortened URLs are being used for utterly disposable social networking stuff like Twitter, it's no big deal if those links go belly up. So, okay, I guess I can sorta buy that. So, my personal rule is to use shortened URLs in Twitter or Facebook, but never in a blog post or any other page on my own site.
