1. The Super Tweet
The actual text in the super-tweet says something to the effect of “Twitter is not limited to 140 Characters” (online translators can only take you so far). When asked how he accomplished the feat, he explained thusly…
QIP 2010 or Quiet Internet Pager is a Russian Instant Messaging Program. Apparently you can use it to tweet and when using symbols it allows you to bypass the 140 character limit.
Well that’s anti-climactic. Here I was imagining the hacking scene at the end of Jurassic Park. “It’s a Unix system, I know this.”
If you’d like to try it, here is the site for QIP. It’s in Russian, so be careful trying to figure it out. Unless you speak Russian that is. In which case, godspeed.
