Posting the following message to twitter (this was a test for foreign characters):
?===)")+“45(&/*ç) sdlkfnaslfn k -…,$äöü¨;:_:;>>><<<>>°+°+”*ç

Which is the expected output. Posting the same message, this time with an image URL, produces:
? symbols where the message has been garbled. I am at a total loss to explain this behaviour as the posted status characters to the API are, per byte, identical.
