Perhaps this is a quite common question, but I can't find it in these groups. So I ask it again:
The link <http://apiwiki.twitter.com/ FAQ#HowdoInbspcountoutnbsp140charactersnbsp> explains how to count the 140 characters. I'm making tests using PHP. The recommendation is to use Normalize::normalize($string,Normalizer::FORM_C) or I do have interpreted it wrong (because it does not seems to work)? My test: update status to "Probando la integración con Twitter desde Madrid". Have you noted the accent? That is the reason of this test. I've tried to normalize the whole string and all characters one by one. The first way does look to normalize only the first character. The second way seems to "delete" the accented letter and keep the rest. What it's going on? Thanks for your help. Herman.
