When I click on a day in Google Analytics , using Standard Reporting view, I don't get any details about that day expect total visits.  Is there a way to click a certain day and see these details?

- pages viewed
- # of unique visitors
- duration
- source of visitors

On the left hand side of the page choose Traffic Sources, Sources, Referrals. Then filter by date top right.

What are you trying to track? Referrals can be a little misleading sometimes, especially when it comes to Twitter traffic!

Thanks.  From that same area, what does "direct" mean?  I have myself blocked by Google's opt-out.  Those are my visits.  I do use bit.ly a lot and wonder if that is "direct", since I don't see bit.ly showing up.
