Nowadays people are typing shorthand-like texts on their cell phones to save time and space.
And since twitter is limiting tweets to 140 characters, people use some sort of shorthand to make optimal use of these 140 characters.
This shorthand is even automated : there is for example a “tweetshrink” button on tweetdeck which uses the tweetshrink functionality.

Could that be acceptable for blogs ? Or is there some discrimination going on between tweets and blogs ?
