According to a recent post by FuelInteractive.com, a link in Twitter is clicked for 5 minutes, then completely ignored.
That got me thinking about all the wasted short urls out there. So many tinyurl, culld.us, is.gd, et al, links just collecting dust after all that initial clicking.
Seems so wasteful considering “the current economic climate”. Maybe, we don’t need all those URLs. Maybe we should tighten our belts and limit ourselves to 1 short url – and continually reuse it.
With that in mind, I built HTTP://RE07.US. It’s 1 short url that we can all share.
All long URLs get shortened to the same link: RE07.US. And, it will be shortened to that – until someone else shortens their long URL to RE07.US. And so on and so on.
REDUCE. REDIRECT. RECYCLE.

I’m getting invalid URL errors…
“The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded.”
Thanks bex – looks like I need to keep an eye on the server falling down.
I also run a short url service http://ziprl.com and i really cant see how your system will work. If I make a url and someone else makes one 2 seconds later I will be posting a link to someone elses page?
Steve, as you may know, I run a proper url shortener as well – http://culld.us. If we assume short links are only needed for a short period of time and shouldn’t be considered permalinks – then RE07.US works perfectly 🙂
