Coming Soon

A Google Chrome browser extension
txtn.us provides tools for transforming Unicode text and creating fun effects that can be used across the Web. You can copy and paste the text from these tools directly into apps and social networking sites - there's no HTML or other markup required.

Anti-pattern-matching

Tired of advertisers and government surveillance reading everything you type? The Anti-Monitoring tool replaces portions of your text with lookalike characters which would break most pattern-matching. You can use this to send messages to friends that are still visually readable to a human, but which are no longer easily readable by monitoring software.

Secret encoder/decoder for private messages

Ever wanted to send your friend a message that no one else could read? Try out the secret encoder/decoder which gives you easy encryption that you can use to post secret messages in public places like Twitter and Facebook. Encrypted messages are unreadable by anyone who doesn't have the secret password.

Get more text into your social updates

Have you ever wanted to get a few more characters into your Twitter feed, Linkedin or Facebook update, MySpace, or other places that had size limits? The txtn Text Reducer tool will shorten most text, saving valuable characters so you can get more words in. For example:

Trying to squeeze more into Twitter or Facebook? This little tool will fit more into the limits of sites like Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook, and MySpace.

Becomes:

Try㏌g to sqᵫeze more ㏌to Twitter or FaŒbᅇk? This littᇉ tᅇl wiᄔ fit more ㏌to ᵺe limiʦ of sites like Twitter, L㏌ked㏌, FaŒbᅇk, and MyS㎩Œ.

151 characters were reduced to 133 saving 18 characters. That's about 12% text compression.

Have fun with word mirrors

Here's a fun tool to try out on your blogs, updates, and Twitter feeds. If you're looking for reversed or upside down words, the word mirroring tool will flip words, reverse words, invert text, and mirror text. So:

Feeling small? Let people know...

The tiny text tool takes your letters and shrinks them down to a humble size. There's no CSS, HTML, or other markup involved, just pure text, so you can copy and paste these into any social site, micro blog, or application.

Like bubbles? Use Ⓑⓤⓑⓑⓛⓔ Ⓣⓔⓧⓣ...

The bubble text tool takes your boring old letters and numbers and wraps them in bubbles. Again there's no CSS, HTML, or other markup involved, just pure text, so you can copy and paste these into any social site, micro blog, or application.

Becomes:

Ⓑⓤⓑⓑⓛⓔ Ⓣⓔⓧⓣ

Want bold and italic text?

The bold and italic tool replaces your input with Unicode characters that have a bold and italic appearance. These characters can be used anywhere across the Web. However, not all systems have the correct fonts installed to display them. Firefox does have the correct fonts, so if you see empty square boxes displayed, switch to Firefox.
