Twitter chopping off 2 characters in Tweets with URLs

Vyralize: Twitter will be taking away 2 additional characters from your Tweets every time you include a URL in your posts. (Services, Twitter, Web)

Well that sucks.

That is interesting. I wonder what the reasoning is behind this.

It makes no sense unless there is a technical reason.

Oh no, two characters...the outrage.

Next it will be Facebook announcing you can only post updates every 30 seconds instead of how quickly you can type and hist POST.

How will the world cope with such controversy!?
