The user description field (for instance) is documented as a maximum
of 160 characters, but how many bytes is that exactly?   If we get
bytes from twitter that are utf-8 bytes, will we then see a maximum
number of how many bytes per char, 1, 2, 3 or 4 bytes/char ?

This matters when spec'ing a database field size, for instance.

I'm asking whether Twitter is talking "characters" or 'utf-8 encoded
bytes" when it is specing a field in the docs?

thanks in advance...
(would appreciate it if this were clarified in the docs)
