THIS SCRIPT NO LONGER WORKS! Twitter has rolled out a fix for the web client hack. (Original text: Force enable cramming (280 character tweets) on Twitter. Use TamperMonkey. NOTE: Stops working when you switch pages, refresh to fix.)

As of 7 November 2017 everyone has access to 280 characters in supported clients, so you no longer need this script!

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.

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

Hi,
I've just hacked a version that survives switching pages.
No more refreshing,this is 2017 after all.

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:

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
