A Bit is when someone posts on Message Boards/Forums (i.e. KFAN's rube chat, ESPN forums, Megadeth Forums) as someone other than themselves. They can sign in as rock stars, super heroes, famous local sports columnists, dead celebrities, politicians, a made-up person, or even another actual posters name with a slight difference in their username's spelling (with all of their stuff copied and pasted in the signature and the like fields) to mimick them. These bits are created for the soul purpose of humor, but sometimes can be overwheliming, repetitive. trolling, and insulting. The best thing for users who have bits to do is to post them in moderation.
1.) You can tell that "Average Packer Fan" is "Steve from Minneapolis's" bit because of how "Average Packer Fan" misspells words, talks about being drunk all the time, sniffing paint thinner, and loving cousins, is exacty how he stereotypes people from Wisconsin.

2.) Who created an account under the username "Cookie Monster" who always talks about being in love with Snuffleupagus? That bit is so lame!

3.) I didn't post that! Look at the username, he is "GeorgiaGay" not "GeorgiaGuy"! Obviously this bit was created by someone who wants to make me look stupid.

4.) Optimus Prime bit: "AUTOBOTS: ROLL OUT!"

5.) If the Urban Didionary editors to not post this, they are obvious bits!! No REAL PERSON can be this STUCK UP!!!

1) Used in the online youtube acting community to refer to a scene or period of time in which the actors are in character.

2) Used to distinguish whether or not an actor's actions or emotions are part of the character they play or not. This is especially common within contexts such as the Minecraft role-play server Dream SMP, where actors shift in and out of character constantly and the lines between acting and not acting are blurred, and what is considered 'canonical' in the plot is quite loose and up to interpretation. This is especially true since the characters the actors play are often similar to their own true personality, due to the casualness of the setting and the way in which many characters evolved naturally over time through improv, drawing large parts of themselves from the actors personalities, rather then being planned beforehand.

The term likely originates from television acting, in which a 'five-or-less' or 'bit part' is a role in-between an extra and a supporting character. To be considered a bit part, the role the actor plays must have no more then 5 lines of dialogue and a direct interaction with one of the principle actors. Cameo roles by famous celebrities are often bit parts.

used to describe someone as a bitch, to shorten the leangth of the word bitch.

first used when speaking "short languge", shortening words by excluding the middle or last syllable, still leaving the word understandable by others hearing you say it.
usually used to call someone a bit, when they dont even deserve the full word. "quit being a little bit", "go home bit", "fuck you, bit."

ex: "Ben Stanley is the original, all time bit."

An unspecified short amount of time (usually less than an hour).

Can be used to indicate that events will follow a normal timescale, or otherwise be used to postpone an event for a time.

A 'bit' usually refers to the expected or average amount of time that should be taken to complete the task in question.
When postponing an event, however, a 'bit' can be considerably longer.

Eg, If you are due to visit a friend who lives a 15 minute drive away, to be round 'in a bit' could indicate that you will be there in about 1/2 hour, 15 minutes preparation to leave and 15 minutes driving.

The expression 'in a bit' is often used in Midland dialect as a farewell, similar to laters.

'A bit' should not however be confused with 'Quite a bit', which always indicates an unusually large amount of time (or something else), and is analogous to a 'while'.
