The current Story Map interface allows users to share with a non-customized shortened arcg.is URL.
It would be great if Esri would allow users to create a customized short URL that would be more descriptive (similar to how TinyURL operates).
For example, the below URL links all lead to the same Story Map:
Story Map URL - full pathway
Shortened Esri share URL
It would be preferable to use a shortened arcg.is URL, such as https://arcg.is/va-tornado-alley
