Internet Became Magnet Friendly

Since the moment BitTorrent magnets have been hyped to replace the plain .torrent files, the BitTorrent community hurried up to made sure it was magnet friendly. Nevertheless, the rest of the Internet didn’t notice them at all and magnets were left behind. One of the reasons was a dreadful experience of sharing magnets with others, but now magnet URL shorterners will solve this issue.

When the world’s famous BitTorrent service The Pirate Bay closed down its tracker more than a year ago, its founders made a suggestion that they might move away from old .torrent files entirely in the near future, proposing a new standard – magnet links. They even started encouraging the other torrent operators to do magnet links, saying that torrents may soon be outdated.

More than a year passed, and .torrent files are still used widely. However, Swedish BitTorrent giant did spur the protocol developers and site operators into action. Lots of torrent applications were fast to add support for magnet links, while major part of BitTorrent services that didn’t have magnets started using them.

However, the main drawback of using magnets was that such links were usually not easy to share, since they were too long for Twitter, not clickable in many instant messaging services and not very descriptive. Today, a new shortener is going to change this.

Nowadays lots of people are familiar with different URL shorteners used to shorten lengthy URLs, so that they could be later easier shared on social networks like Twitter. But all those services didn’t support magnet links, until now.

First magnet URL shortening tool appeared online, specifically developed for turning magnet URLs into short and descriptive links. Mgnet.meallows people share the short links everywhere – in chats, tweets, or on their blogs. Of course, this is a huge step towards sharing magnets more widely than ever before.

It will take you just a few seconds to use Mgnet.me manually by copying the magnet link and shortening it, but it would undoubtedly be much better if BitTorrent services added support for this service on their sites. One of the first sites welcoming Mgnet.me was the magnet-only search engine Sailr, providing its users with an option of generating a short magnet URL in a single click right from the search results.
