Were you impressed when Twitter increased its character limit to 280? These guys weren’t, and literally broke the platform with a 35,000 character Tweet.

Whether you like it or not, we now all have twice more characters to write Tweets with. And if you thought that was a lot, imagine how a 35,000-character long tweet would look. Two German guys tricked Twitter into sharing a post that exceeded all logical limits.

@Timrasett and @HackneyYT shared the 35K character tweet as a proof they had found a way into sharing longer-than-allowed Tweets. Of course, the tweet was soon deleted by Twitter, and both “culprits” were also assigned a temporary ban.
