He Complains Too Much

I'd have more sympathy for Tim Bray's rant about ajax usage and weird url strings if twitter.com/timbray fell on the floor. But look gang - it actually goes to his twitter stream. Sure, along the way it redirects to the funky hashbang url and picks up the ajaxified stuff he goes on about, but still - the simple url actually works.

twitter.com/timbray works and is the final destination. twitter.com/#!/timbray does not always work, and the reason is not always apparent to the person receiving the link.

Reread it and try again.

Sure, but I would never type the latter. The only time I really encounter having to deal with the hashbang is when I'm blogging and inserting a link.
