Tr.im is closing down

I have just noticed that Tr.im, my favourite url shortener service is closing down forever :(

It seems that this is due the lack of support (money) and Twitter movement to set bit.ly as default url shortener.

And finally, Twitter has all but sapped us of any last energy to double-down and develop tr.im further. What is the point? With bit.ly the Twitter default, and with us having no inside connection to Twitter, tr.im will lose over the the long-run no matter how good it may or may not be at this moment, or in the future.

You can read more at tr.im blog.

By the way… if you use my plugin, Shorten2Ping, remember to change your settings and choose bit.ly if you want to continue using shortened urls.
