Using TinyURL, the bot is indirectly promoting TinyURL which is owned by a commercial company. So, why not replace it with an open source tool to shorten the URL?

I haven't used any open source URL shortener yet, so I don't know which one is the best. Polr got the maximum support on Alternativeto.net, so how about trying that one?
