    Twitter links are usually too long. Most experts recommend that you shorten them. I use this program to do just that. Maybe you should look at it

      There are lots of URL shorteners.  The one trusted the most is the one from Google:
      https://goo.gl/

      Users are more likely to click on those links because they are most trusted.

        Writer Fox,
        Why bother with 'goo.gl'? Why not just write the original 'google'?

    In general, I won't click on a shortened link, unless hovering over it tells me where I'm really going.
