vlam-a-post automatically creates a vl.am URL for every post you publish and keeps track of the number of clicks the vl.am URL received. After publishing your post you can easily post your vl.am URL to twitter. This plugin also adds a dashboard widget (that you can easily disable if needed) that shows your latest vl.am URL’s and their click count.

What is vl.am?
It’s the hottest way to burn long URLs! The nice thing about vl.am is that it also measures how often a short URL has been clicked.
