Looks like I was only truncating text going to the main twitter account. This should be fixed now.

This one didn't get picked up by the botb_battles account either.
Maybe something specific to AllGear? Or maybe non-letter/number characters. (I obviously have no idea what I'm talking about, have you seen how bad my website is?)

Juzt tryin' 2 halp!

I'm not really sure what's going wrong here. Tweet max length is 140 characters and a URL counts as a max of 27 characters. I'm also pretty sure not all messages on the main account get tweeted out either (like level ups and badges earned). Probably the best next step is to record Twitter's responses when BotB hits the API.

They did that because they were sick of missing AllGears

Reporting back to my FAVORITE thread (other than my format proposal that I revisit and cry about from time to time) I think it's definitely the length of titles.

whore tit/angry german botber = okay
botb playing the piano part deux = not okay


Let's have OHBs with titles of increasing character counts every hour until we hit the point at which @botb_battles will stop tweeting them out, as an experiment. As you all know, there are 24 hours in the day an-
