3 Best Tools to Tweet Lengthy Messages on Twitter

twitterpillows We all know that Twitter is microblogging but  how can we limit ourselves to use only 140 characters? 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 distract 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 with your Tweet, your tweet character limit will reduce down to 120.

Websites to let you send Long Tweets on Twitter

TwitLonger

Twitlonger is an easy to use tool to share long messages on Twitter. You just need to write the text on Twitlonger website and they will post the link to Twitter. It’s really useful when you don’t want to write any post on your blog and just want to share any important information on Twitter.

TinyPasteBin

TinyPasteBin is another Twitter tool just like Twitlonger to share long messages. It also allows you to write long messages and provide a URL link to you to post to your twitter profile. You can also format your text with user-friendly interface.

You  might find these Twitter tools useful too:

TweetCompressor

TweetCompressor is bit different then both of the above tools. TweetCompressor helps you shrink the tweet you want to send rather than providing the URL and then post it to your twitter profile.

Hope you find these tools useful to short your long tweets and make it easy to share with your tweeps. If you are aware of any such tool do share with us.

    I don’t know why people would want to post long tweets, isn’t the whole idea to get what you want to say out quickly and get right to the point?

    I have never clicked on a tweet that was submitted using one of those longer tweet applications. Maybe I am in the minority though.

    I haven’t really had the need to use more than 140 characters for my tweets, but this list can be a good resource. To me, Twitter is 140 characters, if I need to say anything by using more than 140 characters, then I ‘ll write a blog post about it (and finally tweet the blog post).

    • Whiztechy

      Yeah Jens, thats the best way to do. If you have more to share better to write a post on your blog so that all your readers and read it.

    Some awesome tools you have listed here. I still wish that someone would hack twitter so that you could no fuss display more text. Would be so funny logging into twitter and seeing a huge wall of text for one tweet. xD

      Nice suggestion :D, but I guess people will start spamming a lot and we will find lots of clutter on Twiiter.

    Well no point for guessing that all these sites are violating twitter term of use by extending tweets from limited 140 words with heck or software. ( Even first site mentioned here TwitLonger accept it that its a violation of term of use)

    Probably guys at twitter will soon make changes in API to disable these sites functioning.

    These sites ultimately beating the purpose for which twitter was created and designed.

    • Whiztechy

      I don’t think so Shanker, these tools just give the URL to your long messages or short the messages in SMS language. I guess there is no harm, I would rather say that its the way to use Twitter effectively. :)
      Do you agree with me?

    Writing more the 140 characters is always good for promotion. As you will be able to describe your service, product, blog or website in more details.

    • Whiztechy

      Agree Tech Maish, it’s really useful when you have a to brand a product or services online and Twitter is best way to do that.

      I also highly recommend – Tweet It In. It automatically adds in shorthand abbreviations, contractions, removes vowels from long words, performs unicode replacement, and shortens links ( all in Real Time). You can even connect it to your Twitter account to Tweet without having to copy + paste.
