When POSSE to Twitter, bri.gy uses just the title if there is one. This is great behaviour for my long-form posts. brid.gy currently formats the link at the end of the tweet the same way, though, as a parenthetical. Since my followers are pretty used to that link not being a continuation unless there's an ellipse, it can be confusing. I propose that if using a title (maybe "if use a title that is different/shorter than the content" or "if I have a title and also content" since if I have both assumedly I intend both to be consumed by humans) the tweet have a slightly different format:

<title>: <permalink>

Totally agree with this... <self-serving-suggestion>I vote I add it to brevity and then have Bridgy use brevity</self-serving-suggestion>

Also when publishing a note longer than 140 characters, I'd like to keep the ellipsis but lose the parentheses. e.g.,

Wow, fascinating article. Always impressed when someone has the strength to break away from a cult… I really… https://kylewm.com/2015/11/wow-fa...

instead of

this all sgtm. I'm a bit wary of punctuation changes like this since they can devolve into bikeshedding and/or making it user configurable. these specific changes don't seem like those, though, and do seem like the right idea.
