Still problems with determining max size of a tweet with Tweet Images #file:C:\path\tweets.txt#

Martin, still some counting bugs with Tweet Images randomization from file.

Code: Select all

How big should it have been?

I think I erred on the side of caution as your tweets were failing when shouldn't have, so I think I reduced the chars by 1 or 2 to be on the safe side :)

so maybe if you text was 139 it might have been cropped. Better cropped than failed was the idea of that decision....

Please look at the example given - it says all. Something is not right, and it's more than 1 character :/

It is too long:

If CIF Ltd. accepts your business, you will receive a quarterly amount (“allowance”) of $CIF... JOIN THE ICO!<br><br>***********************

URL removed and replaced with 23 chars as will be done by twitter.


Are you specifying the color information?

No, I did not add the colour. It looks like ASCII to me in TD. But it might have carried over from copy pasting? I don't know.

I'm pretty sure you are calculating wrongly with the dynamic image tweets from file.

I've seen a few examples pass by by now.

Here's another one:

Code: Select all

{#MingoCoin|@mingocoin} price festival! {3 winners, 6k US$!|3 winners total!|Win! Win! Win!}<br>Celebrate the successful {#preICO|presale} & {SIGN UP|JOIN} NOW http://goo.gl/YzVdq8<br>WIN FREE{ $| #| }LTC{ $| #| }ETH{ $| #| }BTC
Gives: https://twitter.com/crypto_growers/stat ... 7521337344
@mingocoin price festival! Win! Win! Win!
Celebrate the successful presale & SIGN UP NOW http://goo.gl/YzVdq8
WIN FREE #LTC $ETH
As you can see, { $| #| }BTC, is being dropped.

As you can see, again, with yet another example given above, I get this screenshot:
Image

Clearly, once again, there is plenty of room for "$BTC" in that tweet. Yet TD cuts it short.

And I'm pretty sure that the example you gave above turns out to be a correct tweet after all. I very carefully construct my dynamic tweets, always taking max lengths in to account. TD is doing it wrong. It needs to be fixed because I'm tweeting crippled tweets with missing links and more. I'm not at fault. TD is.

What twitter version are you using??? Do you even test or just rush through it just to get back to the 'popular' programs?

Tell me Martin, where is this tweet too long?? Even with <br><br> still IN the tweet and WITH all your stars it STILL fits. Like I said before! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE READ what I post. I'm not at fault. TD is :evil: :evil: :evil:

Here, another example:

Code: Select all

All referral program payouts are being done in real time. Give us 24h for processing and PROFIT! https://t.co/3JomToePnf<br><br>
Image

Image

As you can see, a link is removed where it should not have been removed.

So... Again... TD is at fault, check your coding :(

If you remember there was an issue with a single char on the page being counted as more than 1 character as it's encoded value was more than one char when sent to twitter and was counted as such.

so what may seem like 140 chars to you, is actually more due to twitter counting encoded values.

I have tried searching to get a complete, exact list of what encodings are counted and what are not. They state that café is only counted as 4, but infact is actually sent as 6, but other symbols are not stated.

So that leaves the predicament of either encoding all non a-z 0-9 or not. Encoding all and the tweets send but perhaps over shortened, treat all chars as 1 and sometimes the tweet is not sent
