About Tiny URL
TinyURL is a URL shortening service, a free web service that provides short replacement for redirection of long URLs, which makes posting URLs in emails easier. The service was launched in January 2002 by Kevin Gilbertson, a web developer. In this way he would be able to link directly to newsgroup postings that frequently had long and cumbersome addresses. TinyURL has a downloadable browser toolbar. Also, TinyURL offers an API that allows applications to automatically create short URLs.
