I don't think that length of URL or inner page name effects rankings.Earlier Keyword oriented names used to effect rankings but Post Panda Penguin updates I believe its website quality and its quality back-links only effects rankings.

Shorter links make sharing significantly easier, which promotes sharing as a whole. We are all hoping to get as many shares as possible when we post.

When it comes to social media, shortened URLs are the only kind of URLs. If you are not already using them, it is definitely time to start. they do not affect SEO

Shortened URLs are useful to share posts in social media websites. They help to reduce the character count in your post.

limits of URL length not considered important, but it should be proper and SEO friendly if you add your Keywords in the URL it would be well for your site.
it should be easy to read both of user and search engine crawler so it can help to get higher rank in search engine, it should be proper according to the page, we can put our primary keywords in URL so it would be beneficial for ranking in search engine, it should be shorter and better. poor URL may lose your search engine rank.

Exactly, I think this is best benefit of shortened URL. Links that are shared more are good for SEO and Serp rankings.
