TightURL :: Tighten up long URLs to make short ones

Long URLs that don't fit on one line often aren't clickable after you e-mail them. They can also be tedious to type out on Web-enabled cellphones. TightURL squeezes very long URLs like this:

    http://www.cspan.org/watch/index.asp?Cat=TV&Code=CS&ShowVidDays=30&ShowVidDesc=&ArchiveDays=30

Down to a tight, compact URL like this:

    http://www.2tu.us/da42

Enter a URL to tighten (it must exist):

TightURL Bookmarklet:  Drag the link TightURL into your browser toolbar.  Then you can create a TightURL URL for any page open in your browser window simply by clicking on the bookmarklet. You can get the shortest possible URL from us by visiting us at 2tu.us. All URLs added here are available via both tighturl.com and 2tu.us .

ABUSE: Please note that URLs submitted to TightURL for the purpose of hiding their true destination will be removed. This is a URL shortener, not an obfuscation service. URLs that redirect to other known redirectors will be rejected or removed. Affiliate marketing and Pay-To-Click URLs will be removed as detected and the master site blacklisted. Drug and dating sites are forbidden under all circumstances. Please report all abuse here for the fastest response. Please note however, that TightURL DOES NOT HOST ANYTHING. Reporting phishing scams and fake sites to us does nothing to make the actual web site go away because it's being hosted somewhere else, not here. All we can do is remove the redirection.
