Twitter is one of the most popular social media platforms. I like twitter because it stands out uniquely with awesome features. Here’s an article that will show you how to shorten links for Twitter.

If you find someone who says he or she loves social media but doesn’t have a twitter account, then that person just likes social media. He/She doesn’t ”love” social media.

Ever heard the saying, ”the shorter the better?”

Well, I actually, made that up. But to be frank, who likes long stressful stuff these days? Everyone wants it straight to the point.

Facebook has this new colored status background feature that works when your status is short and straight to the point. Twitter is known for being short already.

Well, Twitter actually increased the maximum amount of words (to about 120) allowed in a tweet and that’s a good one.

 

Everything is changing. Smartphone users now prefer bezel-less phones to large devices with not so good/large screen. They just want it to be short, make the bezels small or remove it completely.

Twitter is one social media platform that can make you learn how to be patient and humble. Yes! You cant just go there and type how your day went and expect Twitter to accept that. It’s different from Facebook and Whatsapp.

With Twitter, you just have to be as simple and short as possible.

Twitter is just like headlines in a newspaper. Just get everything in a bit.

 

Now, it’s trending to see people add and sharing links on Twitter as much as possible. Links could also be added to texts and that will also affect the length. So if your link is as long as a giraffes neck, coupled with the rest of the tweet, you will definitely find yourself truncating the text and even break the whole thing.
