There are so many URL Shortener since Twitter became popular. The 140 character limitation makes a nightmare when someone want to share a long URL. So URL Shortener has been a solution. Twitter also have URL Shortener name http://t.co.

So, there are two option when you want to have your own URL Shortener, write it from scratch or just use (and or modify) open source URL Shortener out there. There are so many open source URL Shortener. And i’m using YOURLS.

The hardest part is searching for a short domain which is available. 😀

So, this is my URL Shortener: http://t.mbe.ms (spelled TEMBEMS or maybe same meaning with chubby in english.. err…CMIIW). But it’s not public. 🙂
