140 maximum characters per tweet (not including URL characters)

“TweetDeck has been a great desktop app – it’s highly customizable, among other things – but I knew when Twitter bought it two years ago that this day would come. For me and many thousands (perhaps millions) of other Twitter members, including anybody who uses it for marketing or to communicate with customers, it’s time to move on, like it or not.

“Alternatives exist, although TweetDeck fans may not embrace them as readily as their beloved TweetDeck app. Some are designed for the desktop; others for specific mobile clients. Most do a good job, however, of filtering out the noise, and leaving users with the timeliest, most relevant tweets. Here are our favorites.” PCMag.com

When we got the tip on the TweetDeck client we found an old machine with it, fired it up and confirmed the ability to keep hitting the “Block” buttons. But we wondered: “Is this an issue with TweetDeck or with the Twitter API?” Now before we go much further, the term “API” should be explained. API (ay – pee – eye) stands for Application Programming Interface.
