Total Characters: Non-Blank Characters: Words:

When is this useful?

Many websites limit the number of words or character you can enter in a posting.
For example, twitter has a limit of 140 characters.
Facebook has a limit of 420 characters, but they don't tell you how close you are to the limit.
By using this tool to compose your messages, you can monitor its size to stay within a limit,
and when you are done you can copy-and-paste your posting to the website's message area.
