        If Twitter hadn't closed Facebook support and removed the Android app, I would still be with them. Do we really still not have native support for URL shrinkers that aren't ow.ly?

        The only way I have found around it is to create a URL manually and share it via Hootsuite that way. Really, it would be great to see it work out of the box. For those on Android, I recommend URLy (Free). If you aren't on Android, I don't know what is available for you guys. Sorry.

        This needs to happen. It's a major weakness and the way Hootsuite wants to charge for its own shortener is insane.

        About two years after the original question and one after the last comment.... Do you have YOURLS link shortener in hootsuite?

        YOURLS is a given considering hootsuite is courting corporate clients... many of us are using vanity URL shorteners for branding purposes. This could be a big boon and a reason to switch from Tweetdeck, which already offers the functionality

        I set up my own yourls domain and am looking to use it with a social media agent
        Has this been reviewed since the question was asked?
