    Yea I received the same thing. Just thought that someone on here might have an invite or be a part of it already.

    If Rob Dyrdek is behind it then its definitely going to be a success.

    So correct me if I'm wrong... first he rips off Tosh.O, now he's ripping off ******?

    He's a smart business man though... gotta love us Dayton, OH folks :)

    Isn't Tosh.O just a ripoff of the UK's The 11 O'Clock Show and Harry Hills TV Burp?

    Just got accepted to Ditl. Everything looks awesome and the social features look pretty crazy. Seems like the payouts are a little low though.

    Also trademark for ditl inc filed under GEOFFREY TAYLOR who is Dyrdeks attorney so it does look like he is behind it.. Not much in the news or press releases though

    It actually looks like a great idea. Might as well monetize what people are already doing.

    I don't see a way to use the API to shorten URL's... I'd love to do it within my personal automation tools and websites to increase my wealth. I generate 5000+ clicks a day but it would be a pain to manually shorten script generated links.
