Hi everyone, Can we get a clarification on the maximum length of a username? The twitter.com frontend refuses to accept anything over 15 characters, and I'm fairly sure 15 characters is mentioned elsewhere in some documentation.
However, we're seeing an increasing number of users who have (somehow) managed to register with a longer username: http://twitter.com/toasteroverheated http://twitter.com/veganstraightedge http://twitter.com/Laura_Villas_Boas http://twitter.com/colepatrickturner The number of user's that have managed to generate usernames over 15 characters in length is increasing, although not by a lot. It wouldn't surprise me if there are < 100 users affected. A clarification on the absolute limit would be useful for us to determine how best to optimise our storage of usernames. -- Nick Telford Systems Developer TweetMeme
