With the rapid increase in popularity of Twitter we’ve seen URL shortening services become more common than text messages could have ever taken them. Recently we reviewed a music streaming web app, Grooveshark, and they now provide a a tool for sharing your favorite music in tweet-friendly URL’s.
Just like Twitter, Tinysong is easy to use and very minimalist in design. Visit http://www.tinysong.com/ and type in the song or artist that you want a song link for.
Once you type in a song name and perform a search, you’ll see all of the available results. For example a search for “Taylor Swift” will display all songs by her, but to see all of them you’ll need to click + More Results. Once you find a song you’re looking for, Click Share.
On the share page you’ll be given a short URL that you can paste nearly anywhere to let people quickly hear the song you are talking about. For convenience there are also a few badges for common social networking sites, Twitter, Facebook, Stumbleupon, etc…
When someone clicks your Tinysong link, it will take them straight to Grooveshark and start streaming the song instantly. Be wary however if your friends have a slow internet connection as Grooveshark really works best using high-speed broadband.
