The transition from Twitter to "X" has posed challenges in many ways that we were already used to, such as when sharing posts from X on Discord, the information embedded in the post is no longer displayed in the message, it is only displayed as a url. This can become annoying and makes it difficult for people to view the content, as they are forced to go to X instead of viewing the content without leaving the current site.
Another detail is the amount of trackers that contain the URLs of X, which for many is somewhat annoying as well.
In this context, we will explore two shortcuts that simplify content sharing. "Copy Clean URL" and "Twitter Link Fixer". Removing crawlers in URLs and fixing X links.
Copy Clean URL, a creation by @alydhiends, serves as a practical tool for iOS users looking to streamline their link-sharing experience. The primary function of this shortcut is to copy URLs without trackers, ensuring that shared links are clean and free from unnecessary elements that might clutter the user experience.
Quick Access: Add Copy Clean URL to your home screen for swift and easy access whenever needed.
No Share Sheet? No Problem: Use this shortcut when a reel or post doesn't display the Share sheet, allowing you to copy the link manually and run the shortcut for a clean URL.
Why It Matters:
Copy Clean URL is a time-saving shortcut that simplifies the often cumbersome process of sharing links, especially when it comes to platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and X. By removing trackers, users can ensure that the links they share are more user-friendly and privacy-conscious.
Twitter Link Fixer, developed by @0xChris, addresses a specific need – the seamless replacement of URLs that contain 'x.com' with 'vxtwitter.com.' This particular functionality proves invaluable when users want to modify Twitter-related URLs for compatibility or any other reason.
Twitter URL Transformation: If you've copied a URL from Twitter that contains 'x.com,' use this shortcut to swiftly replace it with 'vxtwitter.com.'

By fixing the limitation of displaying embedded information, this shortcut makes it easy for users to enjoy content directly from the page they are on without having to leave the page to view the content directly in X. Simplify the link sharing experience with this shortcut, improving interaction with X posts.
