Linkis is a link personalization service. Each link you proceed with it becomes special and each page the special link goes to has a bunch of features. All features are added to the page automatically, so you don't have to do all that handiwork. Moreover, it's a storage for all links you ever proceeded with Linkis app. The storage keeps the links with views stats, sharing stats and some more.
After you authorize Linkis with your Twitter, it automatically proceeds every link from your tweets. Links start to look like http://ln.is/example.com/XyZw and the pages they go to become custom too. What means custom? Depending on a theme you choose (we'll talk about themes below) you'll get a set of additional options: likes, polls, comments, views counter, promo bar, sharing options etc.
See those blue buttons in the site header? Now, click on the one that says Connect and has Twitter bird on it. Authorize the app. Done!
No! We don't need your email, we don't need your Twitter password. We don't use your personal information.
After authorizing click on your Twitter name. You'll see a small menu of three items. Click on the one that says Settings. Now, choose your settings as you wish.
We know you do! This is why we've created My Links - your sharing and customizing history. Not depending on the way how you proceeded the link - it will be kept in your links storage with views, likes and votes counter.
There's a big difference between them. We've published a special post about them in our blog. Speaking shortly, Sidebar lets you create promos, Twitter Media looks the way Twitter shows you media files and lets you tune the size of shown page. Both of them also show you other tweets with this link and detailed views stats. We recommend you to use one of other four themes if you're going to create polls and gather opinions about what you share.
The best way to appreciate themes is to try each of them, anyway.
Yes, we do free promos. Actualy, you do them by yourself with the help of our development. We have a theme named Sidebar, and with it's optionality you really can create free promo of your blog, or site, or project just in few clicks. Promo includes a link and a description to it. The promo will be shown in Linkis sidebar on each page you share (if you're a Linkis user). There is an easy way to create promo, this video will teach you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=METp6FLRh40
No, you don't have to unauthorize Linkis each time you want to tweet a simple link, not a custom one. As you know, since you authorize Linkis and confirm that it will proceed all your links, each link you tweet becomes custom. But, if you add #NLN (#nln) to your tweet, we won't proceed the link in that tweet. It will stay untouched and original. No additional functions will be added to the page that link goes to.

Yes, you can! For the Sidebar theme we activated a RT button and a special pop-up, which will remind your followers that you asked for a retweet. To activate a pop-up, simply add a #RT hashtag to your tweet (if the tweet includes an URL proceeded by Linkis). We wrote about RT pop-up reminder in our blog. Please, take a look: http://blog.linkis.com/index.php/do-it-for-rt/
