Here's a little trick you can use to check how long a Twitter tweet is if you're specially crafting it in a text file or somewhere else and you don't have access to an editor that can count characters in real time. It sounds stupid, but this super-high-tech trick really works!

uses a monospaced font
- Write ten characters in a row (not literally, like this:
- Highlight them, then copy and paste 14 times
- Write your tweet underneath and check the length!
