Url Shortening: Tr.im shutting down

A few days back I posted a few concerns about the URL shortening and the “tiny url’s” which are now all over the place literraly.

Now another conern comes along, so what happens if the company you are depending on for keeping all your URL’s safe which you would be posting for months or years (in future) suddenly shuts down. You loose the meaning of all your life long tweets which thousands of links. A huge amount of content will be lost with millions of broken links.

That is exactly what is going to happen to the URL’s of Tr.im, the URL shortening service which is shutting down.
