epic.cm URL Shortener
We've just launched a brand new URL shortener and made it free and accessible to everyone. If you're already familiar with URL shorteners like tr.im and bit.ly, then head on over to epic.cm and check it out. If you don't know what I'm talking about, read on.
A URL shortener acts as a middle-man for links, the benefit being you can send a nice, tidy, short link to someone rather than a big long annoying one. Both links go to the same place, the shortened URL is just more manageable and can be used with length-restricted services like twitter.
Here is an example. Instead of sending this link:
... you can send this one:
See, isn't that nice?
To get started, simply copy a URL and paste it into the box at epic.cm and click "shorten." A new shortened URL will appear which you can then copy and paste wherever you want.
Note: epic.cm is currently in beta and should not be relied upon for any mission critical link shortening you may need.
