How to “crop” the long URL?

It happens often to me… When referring to a link to some news, document or video, the URL is extremely long. This applies especially to twitter limiting the message to a specific number of characters.
Google URL Shortener is an online service that reduces the internet address to 20 characters. Interesting?
steps:

  1. Login to http://goo.gl/
  2. Enter the URL you want to shorten and click the Shorten URL button
  3. The service will provide a short URL that can be used instead the original URL
