DickensURL is similar to TinyURL, which lets you convert long urls into short 40 characters ones. In TinyURL if you don’t define your own custom alias for the links then the converted link comes out gibberish and doesn’t make any sense. Now this is where DickensURL comes into highlight, it lets you convert long urls into beautiful quotes from Charles Dickens.
On its homepage it says “Inspired by a comment from reddit, this service has been created to convert long URLs into wonderful works by Charles Dickens. The fear of cryptic URLs, long or short, is now no longer a problem. Enter an ugly URL above and hit convert button. Soon you will be faced with beautiful words of Charles Dickens. Forget tinyurl.com, now you have dickensurl.com!”
- The url you input to convert can result in a longer version after conversion.
- Its of no use if you are going to post the link on Twitter.
