@dimtion I have nothing against that, but wouldn't be easier to just don't shaare shortened URLs?

True, most people share URLs from their browser so if they share a short URL it is probably wanted. But for some people (including me :smile: ) who share URLs from their phones are forced to use the URL given by the app, which is not always the original one.
On a side note, short URLs are not good for sustainability of the link : shortened URLs rely on a third party and so increase the risk of a dead link in the long term. And personally I think they are pretty useless if you don't have a character count limit.
