Google URL Shortener
Why it’s important to use short URL’s
It is important to offer short URL’s to click on because long URL’s are just a waste of space. For example, Twitter only allows 140 character posts, which means that you don’t want to waste your valuable characters on a silly ole’ URL. What you want to do is use just a few characters for a reliable URL and at the same time have enough space for the important message that will entice people to click on your link.
