Tweet Character Length Different Via API and Twitter GUI


The following tweet is being rejected by the twitter API:

Les réactions à l’affaire des photos de Jennifer Lawrence sont la preuve que le monde avance dans le bon sens

with the following error out:

twitter error code = 186 and message = Status is over 140 characters.

The exact same tweet posted directly via the twitter GUI shows ‘8’ additional characters available.

Please advise.


I was able to tweet that text without any problem using twurl so there seems to be a problem in how your code calls the API.
