CEO Evan Williams just posted a photograph on his Twitter timeline with the tweet Miles w/bit.ly bear, the picture in question as you can see below, has Evan’s son along with a bear wearing a Bit.ly Tshirt.

Considering that Google’s URL shortening service Goo.gl and Facebook’s Fb.me were released today, this tweet (no matter how sincere a reference to Bit.ly might seem) could either be a direct potshot at both Google and , or a indication to Bit.ly that nothing has changed as far as the new launches are concerned.

What do you think is the real cause behind this tweet? Is is a Potshot or a assurance to Bit.ly by the Twitter CEO?
