LongURL API

Use the LongURL API to expand shortened URLs from TinyURL, etc. Submit a shortened URL and then get its long equivalent returned. You can also use the API to get a list of known shortening services along with the domains they use (or view the main site's home page for a list, too). If you use the JSON return format, you can also identify an optional callback function.
