Facebook Limits Status Updates To 420 Characters


While Facebook is not a company known for pot jokes, the company has decided to limit status updates posted through applications to 420 characters, in contrast to Twitter’s 140 character limit. The status message length was confirmed via a quick post published by Facebook this afternoon, notifying developers of changes to the stream.publish API call.

Due to complications, any status updates that include attachments will be published as general stream stories and will not have the status updated at the top of a user’s profile.
