One of the very few irritating things about Twitter is the limit of 140 characters per tweet. It becomes extremely hard especially when you try to share a link with your Twitter friends. So what to do? Just break the rules ;)

Below are the 5 ways to tweet more than 140 characters every time!

1. TinyPaste

Tinypaste lets you type or paste in a large amount of text, and then assigns it with a tiny url, to put into tweets, Plurks etc… It also comes with a nifty Firefox extension that allows you to select, right click and get a url straight away, a handy little tool, which is useful more than just for tweeting!

2. Bigtweet

Bigtweet enables Twitterers to send tweets of up to 280 characters even if you’re not on the profile page. It is a bookmarklet which breaks up tweets of up to 280 characters into multiple sections and sends it to your Twitter profile from any webpage you’re browsing. Not only that, this impressive Web tool provides tons of special unicode characters such as smiley face emotions, music symbols, trademark signs and many more. All these makes your tweets more lively!

3. txtB.in

It is similar to Tinypaste and allows you to share text data with anyone in the world in two steps. You enter the text into the text field and hit the save txt button. It then gives you a shortened URL that you can share with your friends to read this text. Absolutely no restriction on the character size.

4. TwitLonger

TwitLonger will post it to twitter using your account with 140 chars, including a Read More link to the full tweet. You can write what you need and a link to what you said will automatically be posted. If it still asks for an invite – get a beta invite at hello@twitlonger.com

5. TwitBlogs

TwitBlogs is a combination of Twitter and Blogging where you get the features of both worlds. You can use your Twitter user credentials to login to TwitBlogs. Once you login, you can compose your posts like in normal blogging with title, basic formatting, tags etc. Once you are done with the composing you can publish the item. The post published with be available as a tweet with a link to the post. You have the option to directly use Twitter from TwitBlogs as well. If you want the best of both blogging and Twitter, then twitblogs is the perfect twitter companion for you.

    Hey Raju, this is really a nice post mate. I am always run out of the 140 char’s limit while on Twitter, Luckily Twitter Deck is making my life much easier now.

    • http://techpp.com Raju

      Only problem with TwitterDeck is that it hogs memory :( atleast in my notebook it does. Welcome to my Blog Amit and thanks for commenting!

  • http://www.velvetblues.com Shirley

    Great tools. I always run out of characters, especially when posting urls. So this will definitely be useful. It definitely beats me trying to make my tweets more concise.

  • Longtweet

    All these require app authorization (talk about giving up your security…) http://tweet.8bitrobot.com allows you to post long tweets without giving up permissions.

  • Mehmet Gulsen

    http://www.fibertweet.com/en There are times in which 140 characters aren’t enough to convey how you’re feeling, and no amount of rewording the message to be sent could change that. And you badly want to send the message through Twitter because you know that such is the context where more people could read it. And the more people who learn about something which is troubling you, then the more people who could offer to lend a hand. Only a browser add-on like this one could help you out in such cases. FiberTweet enables you both to send and read longer tweets right on your browser, and it enables you to do so at no cost whatsoever. This add-on can be installed by just anybody, and Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Safari are all supported to the same extent.
