Twitter is a social media platform that allows users to share short messages called tweets. It was created in 2006 and has gained immense popularity, with millions of active users worldwide. Twitter limits the length of each tweet to 280 characters, making it a platform for concise and quick communication. One common issue on Twitter is the limitation of characters, especially when sharing long URLs. To address this, URL shortener services were developed. These services take long URLs and convert them into shorter, more manageable links that can be easily shared on Twitter and other platforms.
