Twitter comes with a hard and fast character limit of 140 characters, which actually works really, really well, once you get used to it.
But there are other limitations on your prose, too: namely, that you can’t do anything with the font, nor can you italicise words, write them in bold, or do cool stuff, like tweet backwards.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from almost five years of writing about Twitter, it’s that you can never tell it what it can’t do.
How? Magic. Namely, the magic of Unicode, and thanks to this Unicode convertor which Hepworth later shared, you too can tweet in a variety of styles, including different fonts, bold, italics, backwards, upside down, backwards and upside down, and more.
