Popularity of twitter is spawning support systems around it, latest in the line being short URLs.
We’re all familiar with TinyURL, but with only 140 character to work with there’s a need to shorten it as much as you can. Enter is.gd
BHC3 demonstrates via an example in his blog
- 82 characters
- 25 characters
- 16 characters
So there’s a pick-up of 9 characters via is.gd. Can be quite valuable on Twitter, eh?
