When is Bit.Ly? When is Goo.Gl?

Some one just emailed me a query that when they follow my posts from twitter they observe a Bit.Ly navigation but a few of there are goo.gl links. They wanted if that indicates any significance of specific links, its importance etc.

I would like to clarify that there is nothing like that. When my automated tool feeds my blog links onto my twitter for easy navigation it does using my Bit.Ly application key. Whereas when I generate any short URL for a page that I find interesting manually, I do it using Goo.Gl URL Shortener that comes as a Chrome addon.

Trust this clarifies the user of Bit.Ly and Goo.Gl in my webpages and blogs.
