No, that document just makes it clear that no matter how a character is
composed, Twitter will always accept 140 characters. Raffi has made it plain
(because I bluntly asked) that 140 character -- not just byte -- tweets are
kosher. Even if they're not in Hebrew.

I think the OP's problem is in handling entities, not UTF-8.
