Urlshorteningservicefortwitter And Epidemiology

It’s swine flu season, and JR asks an important question:

I’m taking a take home epidemiology exam, and question 9 asks “discuss how Twitter reduces the potential for a pandemic.”

Is there some way your new service could help with this?

Happy to oblige, JR. In the event of a pandemic, apply twitter directly to your respiratory system. Make sure all your twitter links are created with urlshorteningservicefortwitter.com, or else your lungs will panic when they see bit.ly and tr.im and is.gd links tumbling down your trachea like exploded spelling bees. Keep calm, drink plenty of red wine. The end.

Your grade on your home epidemiology exam is now: 100% A+. You are officially a doctor!
