A Shout-Out to TinyURL

Enter a long URL to make tiny:

A few months ago when I joined Facebook and Twitter, I noticed a lot of people were linking web pages to their posts with something called "tinyurl". I decided to check it out for myself and it's changed my life.

TinyUrl is a website that takes long url web addresses, and converts them down to about 18 characters. I recently had a 240 character web address converted down to 18 characters. And on websites where you can't cut and paste web addresses, this makes all the difference in the world!

Try it yourself by clicking here.
