URL Shortener Gift

A cool thing that I learned today is that if you type https://tinyurl.com/ followed by 5 random characters and numbers, it will redirect you to a random website, e.g. https://tinyurl.com/abcde. This works with every big URL shortener sites, e.g. https://is.gd/luci or https://bitly.com/abcde.

Note that the link that you are about to redirect to can be harmful, so make sure to preview it first. With TinyURL, you can add preview. before the domain, e.g. https://preview.tinyurl.com/abcde. With Bitly, add + at the end. The same with is.gd, but add - to the end instead.

Most of the time, the URL shortener service will explain to you how to preview a shorten URL. But if you can't, then you can use services like unshorten.it or GetLinkInfo to unshorten the URL.
