  TweetCube   TweetCube allows you to share files on Twitter. Simple as that. Blast out your images, videos, music and more with just a couple of clicks, and your files are automatically posted on Twitter.
TweetCube is 100% free to use, but the maximum file size you can upload is currently 10mb. You can upload as many files as you want. They delete old files after 30 days.


If you like to include videos and photos in your twitter life, you may want to check out TweetTree which is a fascinating way of viewing your tweet stream with such items displayed in it to save you having to click on links and have them come up elsewhere.

TwitPic TwitPic lets you share photos on Twitter. You can post pictures to TwitPic from your phone, our API, or through the site itself. There are also popular twitter clients that have built-in support for TwitPic.
Tweetburner This site enables you to shorten, share and track links that you want to tweet. Presumably it will be of much greater interest to commercial users of Twitter than to most of us but even the personal user may find it interesting to see how far a link has gone into the Twitterverse!

Acamin On this very basic and simple website you can share files, up to a maximum of 15MB per file, with your Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook friends.

TweeTube Share your favorite videos quickly with short URLs. TweeTube let you track the visits and comments from the people that follow you on Twitter. A blip is a combination of a song and a short message to accompany it created by searching for a song that you want to share with your friends on Twitter, adding a short message and submitting, or 'blipping' it. The 'blip' appears automatically as a tweet in the tweetstream and friends can click on the link contained in the tweet to hear the song. If you start the message with an @name it appears as an @reply to the named individual, like any other tweet.

'Props' are tokens of respect that can be given from one DJ to another - say for blipping a good song or being a good DJ in general. You can give props by licking the thumbs-up icon that shows up at the bottom right of each Blip in the blipstream or visit the user's profile page and click the number of props to the right of the DJ’s profile picture.

There’s a little star at the bottom right of each blip. Clicking it so that it glows yellow adds the blip to your playlist. There's a good FAQ from which to learn everything  you might need to know.

This is something about which I am quite enthusiastic and I have created a sizeable playlist at To quote the website: " (pronounced TWISS-en-dot-eff-em) is a mashup that crawls Twitter for tweets about music. It then takes those tweets and throws in a play button so that you can listen to the song being talked about. Way cool huh?" Having never tried this I cannot say whether I would like it or not - it is on my To Do list - but am told it is a useful service.

Postica To quote the website: "Create a sticky note, choose your color, and drag it. Postica remembers the location of your sticky on every computer. Tired of emailing yourself one file? Quickly upload a photo or document to your sticky note. Have something to share with others? Send your sticky note to friends and family even if they don't have an account. Tweet you can send sticky notes using twitter! You can now create and view your sticky notes with a Google Gadget on iGoogle."

  If you have, or know of, a Twitter sharing-related application that you think I should include here, feel free to tweet me about it! @linnetwoods
