@treggify Not about the link shortener, but I really love the way you present the case studies on your website.
all the URLs will look alike if this worked, confusing visitors to more than one person who uses this service.. also people might think the url is a mistake w 2 slashes and just directly visit https://zws.im instead of ever clicking the link. I think this needs more thought, sorry.
Really cool! I wish it worked on twitter.
@jajoosam yea same here didn't work in Twitter
@jajoosam Good catch, I didn't try on Twitter before. We'll see how we're going to approach and fix this soon enough.
@jajoosam @overcoder0 best of luck. It's a great idea, just needs to work across all the different random sites people use.
@jajoosam @david_clifford9 This is exactly what we are doing now! Thanks!
it is not zero width when open with Safari.
@yaoping Can you please share a screenshot or something?
@yaoping @karanganesan Thanks for the feedback, we'll look into that! :)
@yaoping I just released an update that changes one of the characters so that "MVS" doesn't show up.
When I used your service in Safari, I got a shortened URL with strange characters. But I can't post these characters here. I guess it's probably because I'm using a Chinese operating system. I suggest you test it in the Asian Language System.
