Bit.ly Acquires Twitterfeed, Expanding Real-Time Empire

Between bit.ly, Chartbeat and Socialflow, betaworks has one of the largest and most up-to-date data sets on the real-time information flowing through Twitter.

Today the betaworks announced it had acquired Twitterfeed, which currently has almost 4 million users exporting their RSS feeds to Twitter and Facebook, and was already a close partner of the betaworks. The acquistion will simply deepen the integration between the two, explain Peter Stern, who became bit.ly CEO back in May.
