You use the Toot.ME URL shortener
URL shorteners are nothing new - they've been around the web for several years now, gaining popularity and steam with the advent of Twitter and it's limited character space for sending Tweets. It was necessary to cut a lengthy URL down to size in order to stuff it into a short tweet. Those shorteners can take even a 2000 character URL (yikes) and shrink it down to less than a dozen characters.
The downside to most free URL shorteners is that the link doesn't speak directly to what you're pointing to - it's a jumble of letters & numbers.
Toot.me aims to change that.
Toot.me is a resource being provided to new members of the WikiToot professional branding community. It allows members to generate a custom shortened URL for self-promotion.
"I considered bundling existing URL shorteners in with the service, but they didn't provide the dashboard that I wanted. They had limited stat tracking and their free versions didn't let you generate a custom URL that made sense. I can't see asking members to pay an additional cost for custom short URL's so we started programming the Toot.me system." Said Matthew E. Alleyne, Founder of WikiToot.
