bit.ly Link to Map Bookmarklet for Google Maps

Over the past week, three times I’ve had to send links to places or directions on Google Maps to friends, and it’s an annoying process that results in really long links that tend to break in emails or are too long for SMS. When something I have to do something this tedious frequently, I try to make a faster way to do it. Hence, the bitlyLinkToMap bookmarklet. Drag bitlyLinkToMap to your bookmarks bar, and next time you’re on Google Maps give it a try.
