Twitter Notify, Because No-one Should Be Hacking The Registry

Anyone who uses the Twitter Notify plug-in for Live Writer will know that it gives you a tinyURL.com url to tweet your link with, but sometimes, tinyURL isn’t what you want to be using, perhaps you prefer is.gd, or you have your own bit.ly account and want to use your own user details. Joe Cheng, when he was on the Writer team, wrote a blog post detailing how to go about changing this. Then, again, today Aaron Bregel, the Test Lead on the Writer team, wrote another post on how to go one step further and use the bit.ly API key.

Now, both of these posts are fine, and give you good instructions on how to change the setting, but it involves a registry change. The registry is not a place people should really be changing stuff by themselves, no matter how good the instructions, someone will screw it up.

So I decided what was needed was a little tweaker utility, so I quickly wrote one:

Enjoy.
