stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, postToTwitter);
tinyLoader = new URLLoader();
tinyLoader.dataFormat = URLLoaderDataFormat.TEXT;
tinyLoader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, gotTinyURL);

private function postToTwitter(event:MouseEvent):void {
tinyLoader.load(new URLRequest(‘http://tinyurl.com/api-create.php?url=http://www.adrianparr.com’));

private function gotTinyURL(event:Event):void {
var reqString:String = ‘http://twitter.com/home?status=Check …
