When we try to publish ‘What’s happening?’ on the micro-blogging website Twitter then we can write only 140 characters and if I attach an image to my tweet then the limit further decreases to 117 characters only.
This is a very common problem of Twitter users and there is no official solution provided but still there is one way of tweeting longer than 140 characters.
Tweet longer than 140 characters, but how?
In order to tweet longer than 140 characters you’ve to use a dedicated tool or service provided by few particular websites. There are lots of websites available on internet which provides such feature and you’re going to find out the best of these websites here.
