Barack Obama Using Boliva ccTLD, Mitt Romney Using Trinidad & Tobago ccTLD
If you follow US politics and the upcoming presidential election, you likely follow President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney on Twitter. To make the most use of the limited space on Twitter, most people use url shorteners, the Twitter default being T.CO.
One of the most popular url shorteners is Bitly, which is found at Bit.LY, with .LY being the ccTLD for the country of Libya. Both President Obama and Governor Romney previously used Bitly to shorten their urls. It appears that both candidates have come to the same conclusion with respect to using Libya’s ccTLD for their shortening, and they are both using unique ccTLD shorteners.
President Obama appears to prefer to use OFA.BO for his shortening, and Governor Romney appears to prefer Mi.TT. The .BO domain name is a ccTLD for the country of Bolivia, and the .TT domain name is the ccTLD for the country of Trinidad & Tobago.
Mi.TT appears to be registered to someone from Targeted Victory, a interactive advertising agency that appears to support Governor Romney’s presidential campaign. OFA.BO appears to be registered to the Democratic Party.
It’s neat to see the candidates using these ccTLD domain names so prominently.
