I have a bit.ly pro account with my own custom short domain setup.

Can anyone tell me how I can use my custom short domain as my custom URL shortner for the the Official Twitter App for iPhone?

I have tried putting:


but that doesn't seem to be correct.

It works fine with Seesmic Desktop but that uses a bit.ly plugin which simply asks for your username and API key.

  • I have the iPhone 4 but do not see API Keys at the bottom of the screen. Has this capability been removed ?

  • @Robert - In te Twitter app go to Settings > Services and then scroll down to the bottom. The API Keys option should be there. Jan 15 '11 at 23:46

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about settings for an iPhone app.

Well it appears that I was being slightly stupid. You don't need to enter a Custom URL Shortening at all.

You need to set the URL Shortening Service to j.mp (bit.ly)

Then scroll right down to the bottom of the screen and go to API Keys you can then set your Login & API Key in here.
