please don't use link shorteners on mastodon
every link you post is treated as 13 characters towards the character limit (I think, I know it's a small fixed amount like this)
link shorteners don't do any good

@wolfpede DO "shorten" links by- converting AMP to normal links- removing tracking parameters- replacing birdsite, googletube and instazucc with nitter, invidious, and bibliogram
@haskal @wolfpede Remove AMP links, anyway, since it only serves to increase Google's vender lock-in over the web.
