Where did MakeUseOf get its custom short-links?

I’ve noticed MakeUseOf has custom link-shortening on Twitter (muo.fm). Is this custom code or is there a service that does this? Thanks guys!

    I'm glad you like it, Steve. We were waiting for quite a bit to get the pro account.

    Hey Steve,

    Jackson registered a bitly.pro account for MakeUseOf and created these custom short links.

      Bit.ly pro accounts allow publishers to add their own domains (ex.
      muo.fm ) for link shortening. Obviously the domain needs to be purchased
      first.

        Thanks guys! I'm glad to hear it's bit.ly because I think that service will be around for a while. It's a pretty cool feature.
