Bypass 140 character limit on twitter for iPhone

By: Marawan Alwaraki, May 1, 2012
As I was starting to use Twitter more and more often on my iPhone I began to realise how annoying the 140 character limit could be. I did some research and found this tweak that allows you to bypass this limit, and pretty obviously it requires a jailbroken device. If you do not have a jailbroken device and are willing to jailbreak click here.

I found it really stressful to have to shorten down all my tweets to make them fit in the 140 characters. I am sure I am not the only one annoyed by this limit.

All you need to do is download '140plus for twitter'. This tweak is available for free in the Cydia store. To be honest the tweak did less than what I was expecting. It basically shows the 140 characters but offers a link to view the full tweet. Even though I wanted to see the whole tweet without having to open the link, having this is better than nothing. Additionally, the tweet is displayed in a good looking windows which is simple to understand.

I know that both tweets are different in the images above but that's only because my twitter app crashed. Anyway, give this tweak a try, it's free and does a pretty good job. Tell us what you think about it in the comments section below.
