Digg has announced the introduction of the "DiggBar" that will let users Digg directly on sites and easily share stories with a shortened Digg URL that's better for sharing on Twitter, as well as via Facebook or through email.

In addition, typing digg.com/ before the URL of a page also creates a short URL and shows additional info about the page.
