Bitly News

Bitly News is a news site powered by bit.ly clicks.

Top stories are the most popular links being shared on the internet right now.

It works by automatically discovering bit.ly links on Twitter in real-time, then posting stories with high click activity on bit.ly. Each story’s score is periodically updated with recent stats from bit.ly, so the most clicked-on stories bubble to the top.

A chronological list of new stories can be viewed by clicking the new link at the top of any page.

To view click stats for any story, click the bitly link below the story’s headline.

Bitly News was built using the bit.ly API, Twitter API, news.arc, Python and Amazon EC2.

This is an independent project not affiliated with bit.ly, Betaworks, Hacker News or Y Combinator.
