Twitter Shorten Links Automatically For Its Web App

From now on, links shared on Twitter.com will be shortened automatically using its t.co URL shortener.

Links will be shrinked to only 19 characters.

Ater the shrinkage, users are still able to know where they will be linked to when they click it as the links will appear on Twitter as abbreviated versions of their originals. I think this is quite a wise move on Twitter’s part to reduce the problem of URL-shortened spam or scam links.

To get analytics surrounding the links, Twitter users will still be referred to third party apps like Bit.ly.

Check here to know how to use the new shortener.
