Did you know that you don't need to use link shorteners (bit.ly, etc.) on Mastodon? All links, no matter how long, only count for 23 characters against your 500 limit!

(And since link shorteners are bad for user experience and break the web, there's almost no good reason to use 'em! 😄)

@jond Which is annoying if you have short urls in the first place that take less space like f.e. php.ug which is only 6 chars (12 if you include the scheme).

"shortening" that to 23 chars is a bit... counterproductive?...
