9 Tweets That Break Twitter

You can do a lot with 140 characters. Let’s turn Twitter into MySpace, circa 2005.

1. Character lumping

Certain kinds of characters are tiny and stackable, and in high concentrations form a solid body.

2. Trick fonts

It’s not a different font, technically: these characters are actually hidden within unicode. So are the characters used to build the next three.

6. 125 spaces

There’s no reason you can’t use most of your 140 characters on line breaks. This works better in clients — the Twitter homepage eliminates multiple spaces.

7. Diacritic overflow

These unicode characters are intended to help render non-English languages. They’re also handy for breaking out of tweet borders.

9. ASCII Art

It’s only appropriate to let a Geocities page explain this one.
