If you are a regular Twitter user, im sure you’ve noticed the short urls with the TinyURL domain such asÂ http://tinyurl.com/dgxf78. This is done to help fit your whole message into Twitter aswell as a URL in the short space of 140 characters. Twitter have recently swapped with TinyURL service with the Bit.ly service, so you will now see links such asÂ http://bit.ly/rkYqH. The obvious advantage of this being it’s even shorter, allowing users to add even more to their message. Twitter and Bit.ly are also linked with the invester, Betanetworks.
