  1. It’s a nice round-up, and I can see myself reading more of these in the future but please ditch the bit.ly links. It’s not like this is twitter where every character counts, and I like to know where I’m going before I click on a link.

    • Hey Garrett,

      Thanks so much for the feedback, as a new feature it’s definitely a work in progress.

      What do you think about us including the source (e.g. via The Onion) and then making that the hyperlink?

      I like using bitly, because we can get great data back on what people are clicking on, but it might also make more sense for us to include the bitly link in a more obvious way.

      Appreciate your feedback 🙂
