We’ve Added a Tool to Help with that Pesky Twitter Character Limit Issue!
Twitter is such an important aspect of your social media strategy, as a whole. It’s what some social media experts refer to as “micro-blogging,” as it helps to build your online reputation and strengthen your brand. Not to mention helping with search engine optimization. But, it’s really the brevity of Twitter that makes it such a popular social media outlet.
From the beginning of Twitter’s time to present day, all tweets are required to stay under 140 characters. This limit really ensured that all tweets were concise and to the point—tweets really can’t drag on when precious character real estate is at stake.
While tweeting may help build an online presence, there are so many questions that race through the mind when delivering the most brilliant tweet (of all time, I’m sure). For us, one of our biggest concerns is whether we are closing in on our Twitter character limit.
“Is the tweet under 140 characters? Did I include a hyperlink—does it count as characters, I can’t remember? What hashtag should I add? One character too many, dang! What should I delete? Do I really need punctuation? Should I get rid of this smiley face? What can I abbreviate to save space? Does that tweet even make sense now? Should I start over? Oh well, I think it looks okay.”
You’re building a brand and vying for new shoppers’ attention! The last thing you need to worry about is whether you’re close to the Twitter character limit. Well, worry no more!
We recently released our latest development – a character counter on all tweets. Have you noticed the little blue bird beneath the caption area? This Twitter character limit notification was a highly-requested development by our users and we agree, it was much needed! Now users can see when they are creeping up on that all-important 140 character limit.
Although a simple development on our end, we know it will help our customers in big ways (and that’s what this whole business is about). Questions? Contact one of our social media experts today!
