The Let's Short URL Bot is a simple Telegram bot to short your URLs.
When you start the bot you can choose between different providers like Tinyurl or cuttly, but you can also configure your own YOURLS URL shortener. When you're finished with the settings you can just send your long links and get back the shortened version.To the bot
