👁Private - nothing is sent to–or stored on–this server

🎁Easy to share as a link or QR code

✒️Compose poetry

🛠Create an app

I am just wondering, what might be the use cases of this?

@vsnthv Yeah, looks interesting, but sort of like a disembodied tweet. Realistically, most of which you could do by publishing a SimpleNote.

This is so clever. Behold: the power of Lempel–Ziv–Markov chain compression and URL encoding!

I had a great time using this product. Endless microsites makes it possible to share deeper content on sites like Twitter, super easily.

Here's my first attempt at an Itty Bitty site, i've hidden it inside of a bitly link to make it easier to share on platforms that limit link length:

Pros:

easy to use, novel, satisfying

Cons:

no permanent hosting, some platforms limit link length

@jwelch Aren't things, even small, that don't add utility or value to your life considered bloat? (Just a quippy response to your statement, not a review of this product)
