Happy Birthday Ter.ps!

Happy Birthday Ter.ps!


The ter.ps app, a URL shortener created by Engineering IT, is two years old as of this past Friday (10/17/13). It has become very popular and is used campus-wide with growing numbers.

2975 links in the first year.

4950 links in the second year (partially more popular, also more duplicate links since we lifted a restriction—one ter.ps link per URL)

  • 740 link creators.
  • 750K+ ter.ps hits all-time!
  • In the last 30 days, 719 links created, close to 25/day.

Thanks to everyone for feedback and for making this application a success.

To use the application, go to http://ter.ps.
