No more bar atop (Hootsuite) links

If you don’t like that strip of social tools that appears when you click on links, then you’ll be happy to know that Hootsuite, the Twitter client that produces those URLs, has removed its “social bar” from links.

Why was that social bar included in the first place? Hootsuite says that it provides “easy Re-Tweets, instant links ratings, and quick access to submit links to Digg, Reddit, Delicious, Facebook, etc.” If those features are important to you , Hootsuite still provides that social bar with its new shortening service.
