Like Twitter, but longer


Referrers across Applications

I follow a lot of interesting people on Twitter, and they post a lot of links. I often click these links, open them in my browser and then move on, intending to read them later (right now I have 52 open tabs in firefox). Days or weeks later, when I get round to reading the webpage, all memory of the referring tweet has been lost, and I've no idea who initially posted it. I wish there was some way of keeping the original source of the link, so that when I do get round to reading the page, and I want to share it or bookmark it, I can provide appropriate attribution.
