Google stepped toward the URL Shortener Services

Since the starting of the Twitter link sharing ideas... Many URL shortener service provider like Bit.ly, tinyurl.com, etc came in force. We are mainly using bit.ly URLs for sharing links and now we will be using goo.gl for sharing links. Unlike bit.ly, is.gd sharing link is not directly open to everyone.

For sharing the attractive goo.gl you need to use Google's Products and Toolbars. Why Google added such a URL shortener service? Actually, twitter is the now considered to be the most populated place over the web with millions of visitors per day and more than 5,000+ tweets in per second. Most of the tweet over the Twitter is consists of links with the very high impressions, so Google is thinking to provide a very Hi-Quality Short URL service the Daily Twitterers who love to tweet the best links.

What are the benefits a Goo.gl URL users get?
Google officially announced the 3 reasons for using its short url service:
Stability – ensuring that the service has very good uptime
Security – protecting users from malware and phishing pages
Speed – fast resolution of short URLs

Whenever we are talking about Google Product, this means its must be something special because Google creates the best over the web, it may be anything- Search, Applications, Software, Operating System.

From the above mentioned 3 reasons i like the Security most because as twitter gaining more audience, it is attacked by a number of phishing, spam, and malwares, which now Google is going to stop with its HiQuality Secure URL Service.

Do this service came in action? Yes, it came in action and i told earlier that it only works on the Products of Google and its Toolbar.

How to add the service to my Twitter?
