Anchor tags to the rescue

It dawned on me late this last week that twitter has created an artificial regression in the web. A little known tag in the HTML spec (the so-called ‘anchor‘ tag) allows one to make a link to a web page, but instead of showing the entire URI, one specifies the constant ‘click here’. For example, click here for more information about ‘click here’. Had twitter been on the cutting edge of the HTML spec, they might have not started this abominable trend of hurting the internet. Click here for the antidote. :)
