As you know Twitter only allows 140 characters per tweet. I’m sure there have been some occasions that you wanted to comment about the link you were just going to tweet but there was no room for anything but the link.
Did you know there are ways to shorten your URL link?
(URL – Uniform Resource Locator – is the address of documents/resources on the World Wide Web)
This is how to shorten URL:
*Copy the web address/link
*Insert/paste the link in the box
* In http://bit.ly/ click on the “Shorten” box – result a very short link for you to copy and paste to your tweet!
* In http://tinyurl.com/ click on the “Make TinyURL!” box –
These two are more popular and widely used.
