Another size for URLs

I previously claimed that URLs come in three sizes: small, large and monster, of which only the last is actually a full-fledged URL.

Some time before that, I did a post on tinyurl. So that would be another size of URL: tiny.

Except, by my reckoning, tiny URLs are actually large -- they're definitely not "small" or "monster" -- except that unlike the examples I gave, tinyurl URLs are real live URLs.

However you slice and dice the categories, tinyurls seem to have found a very natural habitat in twitter.
