What is the URL Shortener API?
The Google URL Shortener at goo.gl is a service that takes long URLs and squeezes them into fewer characters to make a link that is easier to share, tweet, or email to friends.
The URL Shortener API allows you to develop applications that interface with this service. You can use simple HTTP methods to create, inspect, and manage goo.gl short URLs from your desktop, mobile, or web application.
