while back we covered TinyPaste, a service that sort of lets you cheat at Twitter by creating a long string of text or links to photos or videos and creating a short URL that you can use to publicize the link on Twitter.
Now the makers of TinyPaste are back with a new service that lets you create an instant chat room, complete with a short URL that you can use to promote the chatroom on Twitter or other sites. TinyChat is about as simple as a build your own web chat page could be. You just click a button to create a room and then enter the room or copy the link to share with others. That's pretty much all there is to it.
You can save a log of the chat as a text file, email it, or post it online. And you can even embed a TinyChat room on your web site.
There aren't a ton of advanced features. You can't upload files to a chat room, for example. But TinyChat has the basics covered. There are a few emoticons and you can perform basic actions with the "/me" command.
