Statuses/update: Is it possible to have newlines in tweet submitted via API?


Hi everyone!

I’m currently trying to add functionality to my app that allows me to post tweets that contain newlines via the POST statuses/update endpoint, like so:

"Art Feature: title, by artist!

Prints: link1
Digital: link2"

I’ve tried putting \n into the string to be submitted, but the API prints it literally instead of interpreting it as a newline character. Does the API support putting newlines in tweets, or is it not possible at the moment?


This can be closed now - it turns out I was half asleep and was putting \n in my strings for some reason. Silly me!
