There doesn't happen to be a version that supports TweetDeck, is there?

@colemickens Not a userscript, but there is a way to get it working. Takes some more setting up though. See: https://twitter.com/Zemnmez/status/912876877391335424

thx! its work

Qix- commented Sep 27, 2017 edited

Doesn't appear to work. The 140 character limit is still imposed. Downloaded and installed as a Chrome userscript via the chrome://extensions page - is there something extra that has to happen?

Revod commented Sep 27, 2017

@qix I just installed the Script, sent a tweet as test. Show to me 140, I sent 280 and successfully posted without problem

It works but 140 chars counter still there, any way to change it?

joridiculous commented Sep 27, 2017 edited

Your Tweet was over 140 characters. You'll have to be more clever. .. Well that's no fun :/
Nope. This refuse to work for me :(

BZHDeveloper commented Sep 27, 2017 edited

willicab commented Sep 27, 2017 edited

not work for me, in web console appear this error

ERROR: Execution of script 'Twitter Cramming' failed! initDataInput is null

I'm using Firefox Nightly 58.0a1

if1live commented Sep 27, 2017 edited

In CJK (Chinese, Japanese, Korean) and other language, cannot tweet long text.
So I made a CJK patch.
https://gist.github.com/if1live/bc4750c0d4585789b66d899129ecb9ad

Cause

  • code 0~4351 : weight 100
  • code 4352~65535 : weight 200

ab is in code 0 ~ 4351, total weight is 100 x 2 = 200.
is in code 4352 ~ 65535, total weight is 200 x 1 = 200.
double weight means half length.

https://abs.twimg.com/k/en/0.commons.en.e6c61ddd975ec97b1ee5.js

, r = o({}, a, {
version: "cramming",
max_tweet_length: 280,
default_weight: 200,
    ranges: [{
        start: 0,
        end: 4351,
        weight: 100
    }, {
        start: 4352,
        end: 65535,
        weight: 200
    }]
})

Solution

Access above config(TwitterTextOptions), then modify weight 200 to 100.

NOW I CAN POST 280-CHARACTER TWEETS IN JAPANESE

JACK KNOWS NOT WHAT POWER HE HAS HANDED ME

MUAHAHAHAHA

hinaloe commented Sep 27, 2017 edited

emoji is not in their char code because it based on 2 or more chars (surrogate-pair).

Ex: 😇 is 55357 + 56839
And some japanese kanji has same issue (𠮷、𩸽、and some……)

but Twitter API count that as 1 char. with default_weight: 100, it will be fixed.

Shugabuga commented Sep 27, 2017 edited

It does work as intended, but the character counter seems to be broken.

Either way, thanks for making this simple to use!

@colemickens, I have just put the TweetDeck version in a Userscript if that is any use. It is a bit messy/hacky but it works. https://gist.github.com/erydactyl/8ac7fe290a5ea72706cc1b77d15163d9

I want to large it 280

Hi,
I've just hacked a version that survives switching pages.
No more refreshing,this is 2017 after all.
https://gist.github.com/LongHairedHacker/2b4e2a526f02906acbafe39229176b08
Feel free to integrate that here.

Cant get either of these to work :(

doesn't work anymore :/

Broken

Yep, Twitter rolled out a fix. You'll have to try one of the other methods out there to get your tweet on.

Here are some that work for TweetDeck:

Nodws commented Sep 27, 2017

Damn snitches

Are there any hacks for Tweetbot?

off

Not work

techahax commented Oct 1, 2017

wait, so is this working

Frustrated that like most I was not blessed with the new 280 char tweeting, and the "fixes" out there don't work anymore, I decided to fix :) As as a fully automatic #Greasemonkey #Tampermonkey script here: http://bit.ly/unlock280 Get your #280tweets on while you can! :)

Kickass

@CollinChaffin Thanks Man, this works like a charm!

HuproZ commented Oct 4, 2017

@CollinChaffin You, sir, are the man of the situation.

@CollinChaffin Thank you, You sir are awesome! 👍

Looks like the party's over

No longer working - Like us, The good folks at @twitter appear to have found a workround for this. It was fun while it lasted :)
