4 Best Tools to Tweet Lengthy Messages on Twitter


We all know that Twitter is microblogging, but how can we limit ourselves to using only 280 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 280 characters, then here are a few tools that will help you to make your tweet short and post them on Twitter.

I find 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 write a 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 with more than 280 character limit. Also, if you add a link to your Tweet, your tweet character limit will reduce down to 120.

Websites to let you send Long Tweets on Twitter

1. Tweet Hunter

  • Save

Tweet Hunter is a modern tool that utilizes the Twitter thread feature to let you send long tweets. Instead of writing all your thoughts in one tweet, it would let you break down your long thoughts into multiple tweets and post them as a thread. I have done this recently and found great impact with this strategy. Read Tweet Hunter review to learn everything about this growth app.

You can see the tweet here:

Tweet Hunter is free to try for 7 days, and after that, you need to pay for a subscription. The tool offers many advanced features which are not seen on any other Twitter tools. You should read my earlier post on “Twitter thread scheduling tools” to learn more about this technique.

2. Storm It (Smartphone app)

3. TwitLonger

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

You  might find these Twitter tools useful too:

4. TweetCompressor

TweetCompressor is a bit different from the above-mentioned tools. TweetCompressor helps you shrink the tweet you want to send rather than providing the URL and posting it to your Twitter profile.

  4. Tinh

    Great collection. I did not know that I can lengthy my 140 characters. Thanks

  5. Dean Saliba

    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.

  6. Imran

    Great share! not using twitter lately since lots of other work. very useful tools never hard of…

  7. Jens P. Berget

    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).

    1. 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.

  8. Peter J

    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

    1. Whiztechy

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

  9. navsingh

    This is the first time i heard about the tools except tiny paste,Probably Tweet compressor is efficient wen compared to others.

    1. Whiztechy

      Tweet Compressor is my favorite too Navsingh.

  10. Shanker Bakshi

    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.

    1. 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?

  11. Tech Maish

    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.

    1. 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.

  12. Mani Viswanathan

    It would have been appreciate if you had provided actual examples of tweets.


    1. Whiztechy

      It would be a too lengthy article …but I will surely come up with something soon. Anyways, I have tried all these tools and I can assure you that these are very easy to use.
