Thsrs - The Shorter Thesaurus

Popular social networking services like Twitter, where users write extremely short messages, present a challenge: How can you intelligently get across a complex thought in just 140 characters without needing to use ugly abbreviations?

If only there were a service that helps with the struggle of rewriting a 146-letter message to fit in a 140 character limit. Well now there is: Thsrs, the thesaurus that only gives you synonyms shorter than the word you're looking up. Just enter one of the longer words in your message, and Thsrs will suggest shorter words to use instead.
