Get Around the 140-Character Limit on Twitter

Yes, there are tools that save long-winded tweeters, but they really just add a link that takes the reader to a website, out of the stream. Here’s a hack that lets you run long, while keeping your readers right there on Twitter.

First, send a tweet as you normally would … but end it with an ellipsis or a cliffhanger of some kind.

Next, reply to your own tweet! You can do this from your own stream. There’s no need to leave the @mention of yourself in there. Remove it so you don’t look like you’re talking to yourself.
