Possibility to add formatted URL in status update
When posting on a forum or a blog entry, a full-text editor appears where you can insert (for instance) URL's, pictures and tables.
When posting an update, there's no editor, so it's impossible to insert
a link in the text. Users have to copy/paste the full URL in the update.
Obviously, the link works, but it clutters the update page and styling your update with tables or pictures isn't possible.
