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
https://odu-gis.maps.arcgis.com/apps/Cascade/index.html?appid=723e660c2c09447fa8a57d3186dc8d2a 

Shortened Esri share URL
https://arcg.is/1y0yTC 

Shortened TinyURL

https://tinyurl.com/va-tornado-alley

It would be preferable to use a shortened arcg.is URL, such as https://arcg.is/va-tornado-alley
