In a series of recent tweets, Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom announced details on the API for the new Megaupload, which he hinted at in July. Dotcom said earlier in the month that a new Megaupload site would be bigger, faster, better, free of charge and shielded from attacks.
In a new series of tweets Dotcom describes the API's features:
"Developers get ready," he teased via Twitter. "The Mega API [application programming interface] will provide incredible powers. Our API and your Mega tools will change the world."
"We are building a massive global network. All non-US hosters will be able to connect servers & bandwidth," he continued.
He went on to say that the new site will offer support for a range of new services beyond file sharing, and that those in the fax tools, VOIP and video apps field should get in touch with the company for early access to the API. Finally he claims that the new services will provide one-click encryption of all data transfers on the fly and for free of charge. He closes by promising to turn the world upside down with the new Megaupload:
"They abused the wrong guy. I am going to turn this world upside down. Power to the people. Bye bye Echelon. Hello Freedom," Dotcom concluded.
Dotcom is facing extradition to the United States for numerous charges brought forth by the United States government related to his now famous file-sharing service. An extradition hearing is scheduled for the early part of 2013.
