Ever wanted to add bold text to your tweets or really underline a point?

Now you can. Bedazzle is a Chrome extension that adds the rich text editing features that Twitter currently lacks. Well, sort of…

What the add-on actually does is add a new box to the compose window on Twitter.com. When you select a word and choose a formatting option, it replaces the characters with their unicode equivalents.

It’s a little janky but fun nonetheless, and from my testing, your fancy tweets will show up just fine in most Twitter clients. There are other tools that let you add formatting, but this one does it right in your browser.
