It is not uncommon to hear services promoting themselves as having more bandwidth, more storage and more speed. Despite this services like Twitter and SMS are incredibly popular despite only being able to send one or two sentences at a time. The economy of these messaging services has made URL shortening services like bit.ly necessary. Given its integration into 3rd party sites, it’s not surprising that bit.ly also has an accompanying API, which has just gotten an overhaul with version 3.
