Fun On Friday #40: URL Shorteners

A short post this week as befits the topic...

Twitter, with its 140 character limit on message length, has fueled the development of URL shorteners. Here's an article that describes 5 Very Weird URL Shorteners.

Which one is your favourite?

Haha, these are BRILLIANT! I think the bacon one works even better than bit.ly (but not j.mp)!

The Dickens one made me think about how awesome a RushURL service could be. :D If I knew how to make one of these things, I'd totally do it.

As an aside, if you subscribe to a lot of Twitter feeds, TweetDeck is worth a gander. The new v0.30 has a built-in URL shortener - the older version had it as a separate window. I think this one uses bit.ly.

Hello Mosher

I like TweetDeck. For me, it defaults to twurl.nl but if you go to Settings you can choose from a list of six url shortners. Not sure why I went for twurl... I guess I had a reason at the time. :-)
