Shorten URL with Bit.ly is a Mac service that will take a regular URL and return a short one using the Bit.ly on-line site. It runs from the services menu on your Mac. The Bit.ly site takes a long Web address and returns you a shorter one. These are especially useful for micro-blogging sites where you are limited to the number of characters you can enter. This program allows you to get the short URL in one step instead of copying a long URL, going to the site, pasting it in and then getting the short URL. Now this process is quick and easy as it should be!
