BJ recommended tr.im to me a few days ago and I have to say I love it.

What is tr.im?

Tr.im is a URL shortening service (like tinyurl or snipurl) that turns long URLs into short ones, perfect for pasting into Twitter, Facebook statuses, or other places where character count… counts.

What makes tr.im cool?

Tr.im is cool because you can create an account and it shows stats for all of your trimmed links. How many people clicked on it, where they came from, etc.

Trim Your URLs

You can also define what you want the shortened URL to be. It’s going to be http://tr.im/ … something, so you can define what that something is (If it’s not taken).
