URL shortening service tr.im to cease operations.

Tr.im, the URL shortening service, announced that it was closing shop and discontinuing service. Their website posted a brief announcement about the immediate discontinuation.

Tr.im cites a failure to competitively monetize URL shortening compounded with a lack of user desire to pay for the service, and bit.ly dominance in the twittersphere as reason for ceasing operations.

URL Shortening Services – Domain Redirects – URL Forwarding
According to Wikipedia, URL redirection, shortening or forwarding are techniques for “making a web page available under many URLs.” URL Shortening enables a web page to be available under a very short URL in addition to the original address.

URL Shortening services enable web users and web services to reduce a long url website address down to a very short one. This enables links to be quickly and easily shared, distributed and integrated to social networks such as Twitter, Facebook and more.

    You can also opt for aafter.com, if you had been a user of Tr.im. This is free and fail-safe.
