Would be good to expand the tinyurls or at least provide the domain they are pointing too. This may even help you consolidate tinyurls if multiple services are used for the same original url. In Python I sometimes do the following to get the finalurl (not fool-proof):

  finalUrl = urllib.urlopen("http://www.tinyurl.com/5w5wod").geturl()

I added this. A bunch of people demanded it. :)

As it stands, it has a few things that twitturly doesn't have, but also they have things I don't.

But, it's a beta product and hopefully soon, I can get a slicehost/linode server and get it off of dreamhost and I can spruce it up and add more features.
