Url Shorting Services Shuts Down!

logo_homeAs Of Sunday August 10th the URL shorting service will no longer make URLs  short.

Posted on site ( is now in the process of discontinuing service, effective immediately.

Statistics can no longer be considered reliable, or reliably available going forward.
However, all links will continue to redirect, and will do so until at least December 31, 2009.
Your tweets with URLs in them will not be affected.

We regret that it came to this, but all of our efforts to avoid it failed.
No business we approached wanted to purchase for even a minor amount.

There is no way for us to monetize URL shortening — users won’t pay for it — and we just can’t
justify further development since Twitter has all but annointed the market winner.
There is simply no point for us to continue operating, and pay for its upkeep.

We apologize for the disruption and inconvenience this may cause you.
