There is a plugin for GNOME Do that shorten URLs, so you don’t have to have an ugly bookmarklet in your bookmarks bar.  Simply go to your GNOME Do preferences and enable the TinyURL plugin.  Now go to a site and copy the URL in the address bar.  Then open GNOME Do with Super Key + Spacebar and type tinyurl.  Then press tab and select the Selected Text option.

GNOME Do's TinyURL Plug-In

You should now have a TinyURL.  Now press TAB and use the Down Key to select Copy to Clipboard.  Press Enter and paste it in your Twitter or Identi.ca message.  Now you can add URL shortening to GNOME Do’s feature list, as if it didn’t do enough already.
