  • @akira Technically Twitter messages should be encoded as UTF-8 so in principle could be more than 140 bytes. :D

You can't do it directly in Twitter. You need to use a third-party app, such as TweetCube.

  • Beats me. Looks to me like they didn't pay their hosting bill.

I think you will need to host the file in a URL and then tweet the URL to your followers

  • by ensuring the url is below 140 bytes; if not, use an url-shortening service :)

You could upload the file anywhere that has public HTTP access, and then use a URL shortener like bit.ly to create a nice tweetable link to that file location.
