bit.ly has a lot of data, and we are always learning interesting and unexpected things from it. For example: approximately .05% of URLs shared through bit.ly include content about cheeseburgers. (An inclusive search for cheeseburgers and “cheezburgers” raises this figure to .07%.) By contrast, roughly .01% of URLs shared through bit.ly include content about automobiles.
We’re currently hard at work on several systems that will expose some of the interesting data we’re playing with. In the meantime, we’d like to introduce @clickabit.
Clickabit is a curated list of some of the surprising and delightful things that are trending in the bit.ly data stream. You’ll see a wide variety of timely, bizarre, useful, and intriguing links that we think you’ll enjoy, and you’ll see them here first.
