Hi K, Each Tweet (140 character update) must be sent as a separate request. Things to watch out for are: * the API rate limit for the number of status updates that can be made (more info: http://support.twitter.com/articles/15364) * the fact that if a message cannot fit into 140 characters it may not be suitable for Twitter * splitting messages may make the message unreadable as the most recent message is shown first in the timeline. In addition other Tweets may be shown in between the messages you are sending.
Hope that helps, Matt On Mon, Aug 30, 2010 at 2:04 PM, K <kuts...@gmail.com> wrote: > Hey guys, > I am writing an app that tweets a message typed into a field.
