Compare the daily rate graphs of LIBOR and US Treasury bill, the former is a lot smoother than the latter. Is there any reason for this?

It's because the Bill rate is observed from an active marketplace with billions of dollars of transactions, whereas Libor is the result of a daily poll of large banks, who tend to move the rate gradually and smoothly over time.
