public web site for posting files

I heard there is a kind of "Wiki Load" site on which people  can post pictures, videos, or sound files for use by tweets. Please provide the exact url. Thanks.

For pictures, you best tool is probably TwitPic at http://twitpic.com/. You can post pictures using yout Twitter account.
For videos, you can probaly rely on Youtube, DailyMotion or Vimeo.
For large files of whichever content, you have several options such as http://dl.free.fr/ (sorry, texts in French). Note however that in most such sites the files are removed if not used for some time.
And in most cases you will need to use an url shortner. I am personally quite happy with bit.ly a.k.a. http://j.mp, since they provide not only url shortening, but also some stats on their use.

Meant: twitter
I do not use the site, there for I forgot how to spell the thing.
Anyway.
It is Twitter that he is referring too, not Tweeter.

Have a good one.

OK, that makes sense.  I guess what I am getting at with that question is more along the line of "What do you want to do, actually?"  Tweets are 140-character messages.  So obviously URLs are shortened by something like bit.ly or tinyurl.  Pictures, video and sound files seem to be quite at home on Flickr or YouTube.  I'm hoping with a little clarification I can understand the nature of the question.

I need to place url on a tweet recipients can click on to play wav files. The wav files are stored on a remote server.

A couple of free file-sharing sites are mediafire.com and filefactory.com.
Short urls can be had from bit.ly or goo.gl.

Basically, you store your file on an accessible server, then take the url and run it through the shortner to get a nice short url that you can use in a tweet, like http://bit.ly/gcsI9y.
