Google, google, google, a company which never sleeps know has come up with a brilliant idea!!. What do u think about a service which will shorten those horrible microblogging services URLs you want to share at twitter for example, or just by email, gtalk..??
To start with an example you can get at the service at goo.gl :). This "goo.gl" service is not available to shorten directly the URL but that it is integrated within Google Toolbar or from FeedBurner.
The core goals of this service are:
- Stability – ensuring that the service has very good uptime
- Security – protecting users from malware and phishing pages
- Speed – fast resolution of short URLs
This may seems familiar to some of you, and yes the reason is by some other project called TinyURL, which with just inserting an URL it will give you another one shortenen, basically a hashkey saved in a DB at TinyURL site. For example the URL of this post would be: http://tinyurl.com/y8t96fe
