*NEWS FLASH* YouTube Integrates With Twitter – No Shortened URL Though

twitter-youtube-sharing-optionIndia.com just broke the news about YouTube now integrating Twitter into their sharing function.

Twitter has now joined the ranks of social media sites like Facebook, Orkut, MySpace, and others in the options that viewers have to share their favorite YouTube videos.

After testing this feature on several videos in YouTube, I find only one problem that should be fixed – the sharing doesn’t shorten the URL of the video.

Here’s a screen capture of what I’m talking about:

Beside the shortened URL issue, I think this is a great new feature for YouTube!

And with the Twitter integration, maybe we can see YouTube pageviews go from the current 1 billion per day to 2 billion per day!
