Tuxedo Link Shortener™ is a simple URL Shortening service with a twist. It comes with #hashtags, domains, and link notes. This is much unlike the average URL shortening service that only shortens links. Each link here is saved for posterity with accompanying notes and short URL.
Currently, only registered users with accounts can shorten links.

NOTES: But the brave among us want to change the world more significantly, and they choose to work on platforms : big giant slabs of software that don't quite do anything out of the box, but which enable a whole world of new and interesting applications
NOTES: What is your company about? Recently I got inspired by Kathy Sierra, whose blog Creating Passionate Users and Head First series of books revolutionized developer education. She kept saying the same thing again and again: help your users be awesome
NOTES: Duct tape programmers are pragmatic. Zawinski popularized Richard Gabriel’s precept of Worse is Better. A 50%-good solution that people actually have solves more problems and survives longer than a 99% solution that nobody has because it’s in your lab where you’re endlessly polishing the damn thing. #coding
URL shortening is a technique on the World Wide Web in which a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) may be made substantially shorter and still direct to the required page. This is achieved by using a redirect which links to the web page that has a long URL.
For example, the URL "https://example.com/assets/category_B/subcategory_C/Foo/" can be shortened to "https://snip.ml/Foo", and the URL "https://example.com/about/index.html" can be shortened to "https://snip.ml/h2iBY".
Often the redirect domain name is shorter than the original one. A friendly URL may be desired for messaging technologies that limit the number of characters in a message (for example SMS), for reducing the amount of typing required if the reader is copying a URL from a print source, for making it easier for a person to remember, or for the intention of a permalink.
