I thought this was a pretty cool idea, so I set it up for fun. The Voodoo Empire now has it’s own URL shortening service. You can check it out yourself at go.rvoodoo.com. What’s it for you ask? Well, if you are not familiar with URL shorteners, it’s pretty simple. It just gives you a short URL for tweeting, or an easy to remember URL. For example, in my previous post talking about my donation link, the full link to donate is https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_flow&SESSION=ELYC- 1vsdH9Lutrb8rlyzaAULv3ZjNnfFUBVY9CT96DxwKcC32uE1TbZ30S&dispatch= (it goes on for 30 more characters) which is pretty hard to remember. But I plugged that into Go RVoodoo and picked ‘beer’ so the link is now http://go.rvoodoo.com/beer. Neat eh? You don’t have to pick a word for your link tho. It’s also possible to let the service generate random letters for you. That’s not good for remembering, but if you just want to make a one time link to share on twitter to save characters, it’s ideal! I don’t know if anyone else will find this useful, but I sure will!
