A clickable link in the text, with long links trimmed?

Good afternoon!
I broke my whole head with a seemingly simple regex

function linkes($text){
  return preg_replace("/(^|[\n ])([\w]*?)((ht|f)tp(s)?:\/\/[\w]+[^ \"\n\r\t<,]*)/is", "$1$2<a target=\"_blank\" href=\"$3\" >$3</a>", $text);

It works well, but with long links, the layout crumbles and the webmaster starts to swear on the page, for not being adaptive, help cut $3 to 40 characters
Thank you!

function linkes($text){
  return preg_replace('~((ht|f)tps?://\w[^\s"<,]{0,30})[^\s"<,]*~i', '<a target="_blank" href="$0" >$1</a>', $text);
