Bitly Acquires Social Media Publishing Service Twitterfeed

Posted Aug 9, 2011

Bitly has acquired social media publishing service Twitterfeed. I’m happy for Twitterfeed because Pulse2.com used them for publishing our blog posts to our Twitter account and it had worked out great. We had only recently switched to FeedBurner. The Bitly and Twitterfeed team are currently coming up with ways to combine their services to “make the social web a better place.”

“The publishing workflow provided by Twitterfeed constitutes a core part of the bitly ecosystem. Along with other products (such as SocialFlow and dlvr.it) that use bitly to share content and track engagement, Twitterfeed is both creating and consuming gobs of bitly data every day. Twitterfeed had over a million active users last month, and we look forward to empowering them with even more actionable insight from bitly data. We also look forward to bringing the enhanced sharing functionality of Twitterfeed directly to bitly.com, making it easier than ever to collect, organize, shorten and share links,” wrote Bitly CEO Peter Stern on the company blog.
