Only one problems with all these URL shorteners, when the
companies creating them disappear all their shortened URLs
become orphans and therefore useless.
Not a major problem on Twitter because of the typical
transience of data, but when you run a company like mine
that needs to reference historic data it will definitely
create future problems when these companies fail.
Just something for folks to consider ...
