that would be an awesome service!
Currently we use one our own services (http://metauri.com/) to do this for http://trendsmap.com/. In addition to the title, it also gives the content type, which can be useful in determining how, or if to use the link in your display.

I was just wondering if Twitter were going to possibly supply this extra data, as it would remove a time & resource intensive step in the tweet analysis process :).

Another question, will you wrap links that have no protocol in tweets, eg :

"Hey check out www.mysite.com/evil_page"

and :

"Hey check out mysite.com/evil_page"

I imagine many clients will currently link these out as urls and link them up automatically?

Thanks again,

    Any chance of getting the title of the resolved URL added in here
    too if available?

    Then we could display a link like :

    <a title="Twitter Dev" href="http://t.co/s9gfk2d4";>


    or :

    <a title="http://dev.twitter.com"; href="http://t.co/s9gfk2d4";>
       Twitter Dev

    This would give even more context to users, without having to follow
    the redirect path, & load and parse the page to extract it as well.
