I was looking for this. A good plugin to shorten my long links when sharing posts to Twitter and other social media. I tryed a few before but always disabled them after a week. This plugin is great.
Plugin author Jeremy Herve has done a great job with this easy fix. Jetpack has a shortener that you can turn on if you open Jetpack. Make it active and then this plugin Jetpack shortlinks for sharing buttons will take care of the rest for you.
This is how you fix this.
Login to your WordPress dashboard. Open Jetpack. Then find WP.me and click on learn more. That’s it. Then just install the plugin Jetpack shortlinks for sharing buttons and your set up.
You can download the zip file and upload it to your plugin folder or do it the easy way. Copy (Jetpack shortlinks for sharing buttons) and paste it in the plugin search box. Now install it. I like it when it just works. Don’t you?
See the screen shot below.
I use Jetpack’s sharing buttons on my blog and you should to. They are built by WordPress for WordPress. I’ll stick with them.
This is how the links will look when your all set up.
