Those who use twitter or any web based sms services will definitely have come across the limitation in number of characters which can be posted. The most common way to include large information in small piece of text is by using abbreviations. But in few cases, there may be chance of an abbreviation being used to mean different things. And in some horrible cases, the abbreviations mean some ugly things too or they just may look ugly.
The solution for such abbreviations is using a thesaurus. In short thsrs. Thsrs is a very cool service which serves you in finding a short word for your long word. The short is not the abbreviation, but its a dictionary word which has an equivalent meaning of the entered word. The interface of this service is java based and hence, to lookup any word, there is no need to reload the page which saves your bandwidth and you can lookup as many words you want instantly.
Thanks to David for such a cool service.
