Thanks!! We see so much in the "social media marketing" space about
"measuring ROI" and "competing on analytics" that it's difficult to
get executive buy-in where we know they should be going. Real-time is
where the analytics market is going - I'm really surprised Google
hasn't put up something like that yet, since Woopra and Clicky already

The official Bit.ly Answer:
What you're seeing are total decodes, as opposed to total click-
bots, and by applications, like browser plug-ins, which expand the
underlying url without causing a click-through.
If you download a browser plug-in that automatically expands short
urls, for instance, it looks a lot like a human user to an analytics
decode and an intentional click-through. At the end of the day, Bit.ly
like Google Analytics or Chartbeat.
You should probably read the following articles when you get a sec:

Is anyone else seeing dramatic disparities between what bit.ly reports
and what Google Analytics reports in terms of clicks? We're seeing like 10:1
over reporting from bit.ly ... if Google Analytics is right.
