A new Twitter application that allows users to share files with ease has taken off.. The free service, dubbed TwileShare, uploads a file with user-generated tweet text and adds a unique short URL that is tracked and links to the uploaded file.
The viral power of Twitter has catapulted the new service into the market. TwileShare had over 20,000 visits, strong reviews and 24,000 search results on Google within a couple of weeks.
TwileShare founder Danny Bull said, "The response has been phenomenal. File-sharing has always been a topical subject and by combining it with the popularity of Twitter users can harness social media to share files in a new and interesting way."
The service is still in the beta stage of development but prospective users can request access via the TwileShare web site. Integration with other file storage services and an iPhone application are being planned.
