I like how the new t.co URLs show up as the destination instead of some cryptic value. Unfortunately Twitter hasn't built it into their default web based Twitter client. How do I shorten the URL with the t.co service?

Prefix the URL to shorten with http://twitter.com/share?url= and then in the resulting page you can copy the URL from the edit box, or just Tweet from there.
