Composer’s own link shortener

When you’re writing messages that are destined for Twitter, there’s often a need to shorten urls. Well, from today, Composer can do that for you. On the post screen you’ll notice a new input box in the top right hand corner. If you enter a URL into it and click “Shorten” the url will be shortened and added to your message.

The new short url will be added to the end of the current message (not where the cursor is in the text box, that will come later). Shortlinks will be on the domain go.cmp.sr and will be very short.

Also note that any urls posted in the message will not be shortened, only urls entered via the shortener, the rest are left as they are.

If you spot any issues with the layout, or have any other feedback, let us know in the comments.
