If you have to use URL shorteners, then maybe put the source between brackets next to it.

The WSJ is -already- $2.50 as I learned to my chagrin in the airport last week.

Twitter offers lots of web services (though I’ve never actually delved much into them, I haven’t delved into Twitter yet).

After a cursory look, here’s an example of what is available to embed Twitter updates in a blog:

Also, here was a page that I found that listed a bunch of other Twitter web services:
