Where can I retrieve the short link on a TechCrunch article?

E.g. the article http://techcrunch.com/2014/04/03/citusdb-releases-an-open-source-postgresql-tool-that-promises-better-database-performance/ has http://tcrn.ch/1dR1Q0w as short link. Where can I find the shortlink on the article page?

There are a number of share links at the bottom of the article. If you click the one for Twitter, it'll bring you to a pre-filled tweet form, which includes the shortened URL.

    @Vidar: The answer was referring to the share links found at the bottom of all TechCrunch articles. I've attempted to make the answer more clear.

  • These share links are now at the top (and sometimes also bottom) of the article on large screens and fixed to the bottom on small screens Commented Jun 21, 2017 at 18:23
