I did some serious web services programming (in perl) and updated the scripts powering the Friday Afternoon URL page to post new urls via Twitter on Friday. You can follow @fridayaftURL to get a weekly dose of Friday afternoon stuff from all over the web. The urls are now stored in a (postgresql) database and on Friday a script runs which searches for new urls and posts them to Twitter using the Twitter api. When urls need to be shortened it uses the ln -s_ web service to shorten them.
