If you've ever created an account for the url shortening service Bitly before, you'll want to listen up. Bitly has now announced via their blog that they have reason to believe that Bitly account credentials have been compromised and are suggesting users change their API keys and OAuth tokens.
Needless to say, there is a ton of apps and services out there that make use of Bitly so this is something you're going to want to act on as soon as possible if it applies to you. You can head on over to the Bitly blog for the full details and instructions on how to get it all sorted out.

Be careful before you delete the authorization on any accounts or apps. I did that this morning and now my bitly app will not load and crashes at start. Restarting my phone, deleting the app, restarting the phone and re downloading the app doesn't fix it.
