The Long "R" Us service creates long--but human readable--URLs from shorter URLs. Whereas other URL lengthening services are only a gimmick, Long "R" Us retrieves the title of the link and uses it, along with the URL's domain name, to create a long URL. The Long "R" Us API lets developers create lengthened URLs, as well as to get the original URL based on a long URL. Though the URLs are long, they are guaranteed to fit into 140 characters.
