Here's how TinyURL works.
If you want to send a link to someone and it's a zillion characters long; Tinyurl will shrink that URL down to about 25 characters.
Check out this URL:
As you can see it's much shorter and it will lead you to the same place. We all have seen long URLs that wrap to a second line which are a pain to copy n' paste. TinyURL to the rescue!
That's why you see it a lot on Twitter, since you only have 140 characters to work with.
Hope this helps!
