Write Text Longer Than 140 Characters in Twitter

Published in: Mozilla Firefox - Twitter

twitter_logo “What are you doing ?” - Twitter wants you answer this question in 140 characters or less. If your tweet is longer than than 140 character limit, it won’t get published from the web.

A workaround can be that you write your message on some online clipboard service and post that link to Twitter.

Now this is very cumbersome and secondly, your twitter friends will have no click the link to see what your message is all about.

A practical solution to this problem is Twitzer - a Firefox extension for Twitter that will short tweets that seem to cross the 140 limit.


Type your “extra long” tweet in the Twitter box and shorten with a simple right click. Twitzer truncates only some part of your message and replaces it with a link to the full message.

This Twitter add-on is from the same guys who developed ShortText.
