I'm working on a site project right now and I have a ton of image assets that are hosted on firebase storage - which is effectively a CDN hosting media on SSD's globally.
When referencing the media on the site, however, I can use the firebase link directly to the image asset or, I figured, can go through a link shortener like bit.ly or branch.io (the firm uses this for link shortening) which would allow me to update the images later without having to update the website but instead just update the link the shortened one is pointing at.
I'm wondering though if there is any issue with doing this? I think uptime and latency is possible?
Any other issues?
Is this a really bad idea too?
