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
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.

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.

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.
