This snippet is esssentially the same as being in the Twitter longer tweets test, for tweetdeck.
The Tweet length counter is fixed by tricking TweetDeck into counting up to 140 characters, twice, so you'll see 140
instead of 280 in the counter but going over 140 will give you another set of 140 charactrs.

Looks like this will not work for scheduling tweets ahead of time. Thanks for sharing!

why's it minified? it made me kinda suspicious at first

(i de-minified it and it does what it says at least)

It stopped working for me too.

Did Twitter concluded their 280 characters test ?

Too sad.
