We all know that Twitter is microblogging but how can we limit ourselves to use only 140 characters?
Update August 2016:
At least for a blogger it becomes very tough. Bloggers are very expressive and always ready to share updates and information. If you too face problems and get frustrated when you want to tweet more than 140 characters then here are few tools which will help you to make your tweet short and post them across Twitter.
I actually found myself in this situation many times, when I’m replying to someone, and I feel more space for characters. One simple way is to add contd.. and then write new tweet. But, again it distracts reading. So, it’s better to use any of these 3rd party sites, which will let you send tweets in more than 140 character limit. Also, if you add a link to your Tweet, your tweet character limit will reduce down to 120.
