(4) [NO LONGER WORKS] TwitterGram – Online service that can automatically post your Flickr images as Tweets on your Twitter profile. The application has a number of customization options which let you set your own preferences. For example, if you only want a few of the photos you upload to be sent to Twitter, you can create a special tag for these photos.
(5) [NO LONGER WORKS] Rapidshare.net – Rapidshare.com is a popular file hosting service, which lets anyone upload files and share them online, by posting their download links. However, if the download link expires you end up with a broken link. Rapidshare.net provides a solution to this problem. Next time when you upload files to Rapidshare simply change the extension of your Rapidshare links from .com to .net. When a user clicks the Rapidshare.net link, they are redirected to the official Rapidshare download page. If the link is dead, the user is offered alternative download links to similar files.
