Since delicious announced new tools to share bookmarks last week, I’ve been on the lookout for examples of them in the wild. It seems that the Twitter integration is becoming popular because I’ve noticed quite a few tweets that make use of delicious’s URL shortener - Here’s a search that shows all those tweets as they arrive in realtime.

The URL shortener is a nice use of the old domain - one of the original (and coolest) domain hacks on the web, that spawned a thousand imitators.

Tweets sent via delicious require your password (instead of using the more secure OAuth protocol) which is a shame but I think we can probably trust Yahoo with our passwords (it has been my OpenID provider for many years). The tweets are also marked as being sent via the API but hopefully the twitter devs will add delicious to the list of approved applications very soon.

Whilst I have my misgivings about the new delicious frontpage, and I’m not alone, I like these new features and I hope that delicious continues to integrate and becomes a bit more daring in some of its future innovations.

It's good to see they've added new features. URL shorteners have really gotten popular lately and it's fun to use the domain for it.
