Interesting to read your thoughts on this, Chris. Thanks for posting.

Twitter correctly only asked for read-only access to my account. After authing with Twitter from a link at the end of the comments list, I was landed back at shiflett.org/community which was slightly confusing. I would be even better if I could have landed back here ready to post.

One thing to watch out for is that URL sentences can be difficult to translate. Many multilingual sites keep all their URLs in one language, but others translate into the language of the pages.

Of course, there can be significant differences in the order of works in a sentence between different languages, and this could provide implementation challenges.

There can even be issues in English. In US English you'd say company.com/is, whereas in British English we might use company.com/are. The latter would read very uncomfortably to a US English speaker.

company.com/about is unlikely to raise any such issues.
