TwitDoc — Further Extending Twitter's Publishing Capabilities

One of the amazing things about Twitter’s simplicity is how well it lends itself to utilization in a variety of ways that weren’t explicitly intended when it was initially designed.

Today TwitDoc is launching what appears to be the first service for sharing documents over Twitter, bringing support for PDFs, Microsoft Office Documents, and a bunch of other file formats.

My only concern is that the widespread practice of people posting Microsoft Office Documents via TwitDoc can quickly turn Twitter into a new vector for malware in the form of naughty Excel macros and such. Hopefully the folks behind TwitDoc will be actively scanning the files uploaded and shared through their service.
