mastodon protip, this isn't meant as a subtoot but based on something I saw 

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

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.
