Hey, remember the epic saga of Tr.im announcing they were going to close, then deciding that they weren’t going to after all? The sequel has arrived! The Cli.gs shortener is shutting down now, though they’re handling it much better. You’ll be able to export your data, and the URLs will also be archived in the 301works project.
I’d like to emphasize that having bit.ly as the default for Twitter is in no way part of the decision to shut down. As I said in the post, it’s a one man operation that has grown too big for me to maintain it.
That is what I call a professional attitude.
