In the age of 140 character micro content, URL shortening has become a necessity. Unfortunately, there's no business model behind them. WTF? Not again. As such Tr.im has announced it will be terminating it's services later this year. Yikes? Not really. At least not for most of us. How many people actually search older Twitter posts for gold? Not anybody I know. So older Twitter posts are broken, most of which will never see daylight.
Scoble and Dave Winer see this as a short-coming of Twitter. I'm not as concerned.
