HubSpot recently added a new feature to its popular free tool, Twitter Grader.  The TwitSnip bookmarklet is a simple tool for easily posting text from other web pages to Twitter.  The tool can be accessed by clicking on the TwitSnip tab on http://twitter.grader.com or by visiting http://twitter.grader.com/twitsnip.

In addition to enabling users to "quote" a web page's text, it does some other cool things.  TwitSnip also:

  • Looks up the @username of the website you are quoting (if one exists) and includes it in the tweet it generates,
  • Shortens the website's URL to a TinyURL, and
  • Shortens the length of the tweet (if needed) using a "twitabulary" of short words.    

Here is an example of a tweet generated by TwitSnip:

After quickly installing the TwitSnip bookmarklet to your browser's toolbar, using it is as easy as highlighting the desired text on a website, clicking the bookmark to invoke TwitSnip's power and logging into Twitter to post the tweet! 

Check it out, and let us know what you think!
