This title is longer than our URLs

April 18, 2012

The Bard tells us brevity is the soul of wit, so scrible just got a bit wittier. We have rolled out our own URL shortening service that gets used behind the scenes to deliver you shorter URLs than ever before. We noticed our links were getting a little bloated and wanted to slim them down to keep up with today’s scribler on the go.

Here’s an example Tweet using a new shortened URL:

The shortened URLs take the form of http://scrible.com.com/s/(super secret code goes here) but function in exactly the same manner as the old links we generated. And don’t worry, all the links you’ve generated in the past are still valid as well.

The best part about all of this is that you don’t have to do a thing to take advantage of it. We do all of the shortening, serving, and redirecting behind the scenes without any extra work on your part. So just keep on sharing those pages, and we’ll keep serving out shorter and sleeker URLs.
