I still use TinyURL desu.

>>52227857
Are you retarded? Any link shortener is a botnet by design.
>>
why not just make your own?

It's not a seriously complicated thing to do. Just register a domain with an obscure tld so you can get a really short domain and then make a script that redirects according to a hashmap that's set up by a config page. you could run it on AWS for like a cent a month probably, and control it yourself.

EVERYTHING IS BOTNET

>and then make a script
You don't have to do that either, just use any you find on github.
>>
>>52229236
yeah, but a simple redirect script would be easy enough that you don't have to go hunting around for some robust full-featured thing.
>>
What retard would be willing to trust a URL to an unknown place anyway?
>>
>>52229206

Woah there egghead I'm not a rocket scientist get the fuck out with your computer magic, I have a life ya know?
>>
>>52229407
the internet is fundamentally built on trust (to the extent that it's arguably dangerous). the only thing that makes you confident that youtube.com won't have a redirect to child porn (or child porn itself) is self-stated policies. some site takeover or who hack or whatever could fuck that all up.

tinyurl has a preview feature (i think you prepend "preview" to the url) but who's to say that they'll faithfully represent the destination? i mean they say they will, but they could be trolls.

if you need characters, you sacrifice the modicum of confidence that you get from having the full url by shortening it.

your options are to listen to a rational exposition on the trust built into the web, or to be an autistic spasming faggot like >>52229650.
