Really Long Tweets

Hack Twitter's 140 char limit. Disguise tweets as links.

This doesn't actually make sense though, since links always counted for 23-25 characters. So while this tools is cool, in that it makes custom URLs as long as you like, it actually works right now exactly the same way it will work when Twitter makes the change, as URLs, no matter how long they are right now, are capped at 23-25 characters.
@nivo0o0 yeah, the one wrinkle is if Twitter allows for longer links to be posted and fully seen in tweets to complement the new rules. Not sure this is going to happen, but I thought it would be amusing to imagine what could happen if it did.

@_maxdeutsch @nivo0o0 Solution: chunk long tweets as multiple 23-25 character links :) ...?

@nivo0o0 Exactly, not sure why anyone would think differently. Its just a nice way for Twitter to give us back 23-25 extra characters to write stuff like: LOL or #keytosuccess or #GIFs4LYF
@matt_sven @nivo0o0 this was my first thought. but the end result wasn't as pretty (of course, it may be the only thing that ends up working, so...)
