This post is somewhat of an experiment. I’ve recently been shown the power of unicode domains, particularly in the case of URL shorteners for Twitter where every character counts. I’ve successfully tweeted these shortened URLs and had them correctly sho up on FriendFeed and Facebook. I’m curious if the Ecto to WordPress chain will be as succcesful at preserving it.
The English name of the service is Tinyarro.ws. Here’s an example of the link to this blog as shortened by the service: http://?.ws/?? . Hard to get much shorter than that.
I find this whole thing pretty cool and will keep fiddling around with this service. Unless it completely falls apart, it will be my shortener of choice even though I like the extra features of bit.ly such as the click counter.
