I wouldn't, but I do understand that that is not terribly helpful. If
you are going to use one, follow a link created by that service while
watching your HTTP traffic - you will be able to spot obviously
nefarious or brittle behaviour pretty easily.
I generally create a URL shortening service native to the website if I
have long links on website I run, so that there is no middle man in the
process and some semblance of control.
For more on why they are/can be a problem, start here:
