we're writing an application to do live gps tracking with Twitter. We'd like to be able to have a full url in a message which we could parse or use as a direct web link.
GPS logging will be done on pocket pc based phones and we already have a test application available (Twittrack). We're extending the functionality of our silverlight application http://tweepware.infonote.com to be able to display live gps updates from Twitter. But...... When we post to Twitter using the api our url is always shrunk to a bit.ly url. How can we stop this? Regards Pete
