#Bitly Introduces Three New Real Time #APIs

Bitly just announced the launch of three new data APIs that, according to The New York Observer, will radically improve service. The APIs are admittedly geared toward third-party developers, but Hilary Mason, Bitly’s chief data scientist, says any user can play around with the functionality with a demo interface at rt.ly. There’s a real-time search that’s open to any Bitly user as well as an API for content analysis and a “bursting phrases” that’s akin to a trending Twitter topic. Mason said links about food are clicked statistically disproportionately from Brooklyn.
