According to American Heritage Dictionary, bit would be an ACRONYM, since
an acronym is "a word formed by the initial letters of a name or by
combining initial letters or parts of a series of words, as radar for
radio detecting and ranging." I guess the same would be true for modem,
meaning modulator/demodulator.
