Uses for flit2.com

Here are just a few of the many uses for flit2.com's URL shortening service:

  • Shorten web addresses for emails, forum posts, blogs etc. which cannot handle long URLs and might wrap them, making them unclickable
  • Lower your total character count when texting long web addresses to a mobile phone
  • Hide the real URL of affiliate links from visitors to your site to prevent theft of your commissions
  • Obscure your real email address from bots which harvest them to spam (enter an address like mailto:myaddress@myisp.com). Note that this feature does appear to be browser dependant so such links may not work in every browser
  • Circumvent protection on sites which don't allow direct links to their competitor's site (if you are violating a site's terms you do so at your own risk)
  • Clean up bookmarks for social bookmarking sites or sites with low character limits like Twitter
