Got error 186 for character counting for pre-existing URI


I attempted to post this tweet via the REST API

Tropical Storm #Karen Intermediate advisory 2A issued. Karen expected to approach the northern gulf coast on saturday.

It is at exactly 140 chars. My understanding is that the URIs are not covereted to URIs, so this should have worked?

{“errors”:[{“code”:186,“message”:“Status is over 140 characters.”}]}



Hi there,

All URLs are wrapped with, including URLs.
