I have been playing with the http://ref.ly service. You can visit the site and set a shortened URL for a Bible verse or you can just make it yourself.
Here are some samples:
- A Bible passage in a random version: http://ref.ly/Psalm 23
- A Bible passage in a specific version: http://ref.ly/Ps23;NLT
A couple of things I noticed:
- Verse references don’t work. You can do a search like http://ref.ly/Ps23.1-3 but it will still give you all of Psalm 23.
- The site has some strange behavior. It’s in Beta and the More menu at the top doesn’t work quite right.
Here’s a sample of what it looks like when you use it on Twitter:
P.S. Follow me on Twitter http://twitter.com/lingamish and let me know if you are tweeting about Bible translation.
P.P.S. A Twitter account has been set up that retweets all the posts and comments from Better Bibles Blog: http://twitter.com/betterbibles
