Mocking Bird for Twitter
iOS iPhone Utilities
Tired of only being able to post 140 characters to Twitter? Mocking bird lets your post more characters without shortening any of your words!
Q: How does it work?
A: Unicode! There are hundreds of characters not available on your keyboard that look like 2 letters but are only counted as 1 letter by computers (i.e. twitter's character count recognition system) For example: if you were to type "Nj" twitter would recognize that as 2 characters, however if you were to run it through mocking bird first it would then post "ǋ" which is only 1 character! See the difference? Don't worry... most humans can't, but it really is only 1 character... go ahead Copy paste this "ǋ" into Twitter and see how many characters it says it is!
Using this method you can post well over 200 characters in some of your tweets, Mocking Bird has all of these special unicode characters already archived and will exchange them for you automatically!
