File sharing comes to twitter with FileSocial

As it’s very clear, Twitter is a paradigm shaking platform surprising even its creators with its usage and popularity. We’ve seen it evolving from just a status updating platform to something much more bigger. During the evolution, it was photo sharing that happened first, then came songs and video. And now real file sharing comes to twitter with FileSocial.

Yes. You can now share files from your computer with your twitter followers. As easy as selecting a file and hitting the upload button.

Features of FileSocial

  • Easy interface (similar to Twitpic UI)
  • Uses oAuth to authorize your twitter account (This way, you don’t have to give out your login credentials)
  • A maximum allowed file size of 50 MB
  • Supports images, audio, video and documents
  • Supports free download of uploaded/shared files
  • Comments could be made to the uploaded items and will be sent as   @reply to you (Twitpic model)

I’ve tried it with a sample JPG image and it worked pretty nice. But, please note that all the uploaded files are PUBLIC and could be accessed by anyone. As it is with all sharing activities on web, please be sure about what you’re doing. That said, having a “make this private” option (like the “protect tweets” option on twitter) would make this even more nicer. Maybe they’ll add it soon.

Evernote Gets Twitter Integration

Evernote the popular note taking software has finally integrated itself with , the popular social networking site.

Users will have to follow the steps given below, in order to add notes through tweets.

  1. Follow myEN on Twitter (you will need a Twitter account)
  2. myEN will follow you back, and send you a DM with a link

In addition to that, Evernote will automatically include image thumbnails, when you include a TwitPic image in your tweet, and display it in your note, this feature is definitely cool, and would be much better if expanded to other twitter image sharing websites.

Watch Videos and Preview Images Inline In Twitter

is quickly becoming a place to share everything under the hood, but with that it is also becoming more and more difficult to keep up with content shared with you, for example, if one of your friends posts a URL of a video or shares a picture with you, you still have to click on the link and load another URL before you can actually view the video or image.

If you rant about having to do that, we just came across a cool script for , that allows you to preview videos and images and load them inline, while you are browsing your twitter timeline, saving you time and efforts to launch a new browser window, just to take a look at what your friends are sharing.


TwitterMedia is a script I would recommend Twitter users to use without thinking, it is going to save you a lot of time and efforts after all.
