URL shortening services like tr.im, bit.ly and TinyURL face downtime very often and the short URLs look ugly. Ever wondered how good it could be to have a URL shortening service using your own domain? The Twitter Friendly Links Plugin does exactly that. It creates short URLs for your posts which you can fully customize according to your preferences. It is also compatible with the Twitter Tools plugin which you can use to integrate your blog with twitter.
I’m yet to test the Twitter Friendly Links integration with Twitter Tools. Once I publish this post, I’ll confirm if it works.
PS-It works! I’m switching from Twitme to Twitter Tools just because it has support for Twitter Friendly Links.
