    after I use plugins tinyurl, why my website’s performance becomes slow. thank you.

      There might be a delay on page load because the plugin needs to communicate with Tiny URL’s API. You can try my another plugin Short Link. It almost gives you the same result and it doesn’t slow down your site.
