I have tweets that I have used many times and all fit within 140 charactors. Now these same tweets are over 140 charactors. I did a search but could not find anything. I just counted and it said that over 127 charactors was over the 140 limit. I have used Twitter for over 2 years.
Are you by any chance using a new device, or a different program to post to twitter? Just wondering if it is a character set issue. Some character sets have characters that take up more than one 8-bit spot.
Hey Chuck, somewhere there's a space which isn't being either viewed as a space or is/was deleted.
The only time you should run into this problem with Twitter is when there's no space between your title and the URL.
Remember when HP put up dates of articles and updates and then took them down. Well Twitter must have tried something and then went back. So my tweets that I had to shorten to fit on now have a lot of extra spaces now. Also when they tried this the number of charactors were in blue. Now they are back to being black. Every big website is trying new things except Facebook. They never try anything new. Just kidding!

Anyone care to make any observations about Twitter as to how it relates to our writer-entrepreneur well-being? Useless? Potential? Rants? Whatever.
