I saw some discussion about sending position data via Twitter and wondered if 
that sort of 
mashup could also be used to autogenerate a Web link for Google maps with 
lon/lat already 

That way users could transmit a posit with some selection of the data being 
sent to Twitter 
or email. Recipients on Twitter would see the message with a shortened URL that 
would open a 
Google map with the location noted.

Recipients of email would get the same link.

Seems like an awfully nice feature unless it duplicates some existing
